Alexander McQueen has been found dead today at his London home at Age 40!

My heart goes out to The King of Fashion, Mr. Alexander McQueen.

I am Heart broken and I can not imagine how sad of a time this is and will be in the future for his family and friends.

Me, I will Dearly Miss This Huge Talent. What Happened?

With All My Love To Mr. McQueen. May you rest in piece. You were my Hero in the world called Fashion.

From the Guardian:
"His company, Alexander McQueen, issued a statement saying: "On behalf of Lee McQueen's family, Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen brand, has been found dead at his home. At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with Lee's family.

"Lee's family has asked for privacy in order to come to terms with this terrible news and we hope the media will respect this."

Born in London in 1969 as the youngest of six children, McQueen left school at the age of 16 and was immediately offered an apprenticeship at the traditional Saville Row tailors Anderson and Shephard and then at neighbouring Gieves and Hawkes.

McQueen was a four-time winner of the British designer of the year award as well as the international designer of the year award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America. He was awarded the CBE in 2003."
