Fashion Spotlight: R.I.P. Alexander McQueen

Lee McQueen - Concerned
Michael Oliveira-Salac says McQueen “turned fashion upside down”, by being different. (BBC News)

Once again we are reminded of how limited the time we have on this green globe labeled Earth can actually be. Yesterday the realm of fashion lost another icon by the name Lee Alexander McQueen, (16 March 1969 – 11 February 2010). McQueen was an English fashion designer known for his unorthodox designs and outlandish runway shows.
News has it that his mother had just passed away and he was going through a difficult time coping as he was extremely close to his mother.  Although his Twitter account has been deleted you can view it here, where he expressed himself in his final tweets.
If you are fashion illiterate, you might recognize some of his work donned by Rihanna & even more noteworthy: Lady Gaga. The critically acclaimed UK fashion designer earned the esteemed British Fashion Designer of the Year award four times!
I found out about the tragic news via my pal Sash’s Facebook post as soon as I got home it REALly saddened my night believe it or not. I am very much into fashion and very familiar with his eccentric work. ‘Tis life, we celebrate life so let us not mourn death, but celebrate the legacy of one whom is deceased so that that individual may live on forever through our work, in our thoughts and so on & so forth.  Just like the legendary and very much so iconic Yves Saint Laurent, Mr. Lee Alexander McQueen will most certainly be missed.
