alexander mcqueen- one of the best!
my heart is hurting so much today to find out that alexander mcqueen died. just last week i had a convo about how amazing he is. he is one of, and maybe even my fav fashion designer. i admired his imagination; his creations always inspired me to want to push the envelope a little bit more.
so sad to see such a wonderful talent pass away in their prime.
rest in peace alexander mcqueen!

“The news that Alexander McQueen has killed himself is particularly devastating because it always felt to me like he’d be the last man standing. He was restless, but so pragmatic with it I assumed he had what it took to endure the extreme situations he placed himself in. He was also an arch romantic with a pessimistic streak. It produced some of the most beautiful, shocking images in the history of fashion, but it’s a state of mind that can lead to endless disappointments. The death of McQueen’s mother last week would have validated his pessimism. It would undoubtedly have taken away his most vital support. It’s awful to imagine him trying—and failing—to cope, and one can only hope that, if he was looking for peace, he found it. For everyone left behind, there will eventually be consolation, however scant right now, in a body of work whose power will never die.”
