Lee Alexander McQueen (CBE), born 16th March 1969 deceased 11th February 2010.
It is with sadness that we acknowledge the death, believed to be suicide, of the young and iconic fashion designer Alexander McQueen, who died at his home yesterday. He was the controversial designer for five years for Givenchy before really cementing the success of his own labels. Known for his outrageous fashion shows and over the top designs, he was an incredible craftsman with an early apprenticeship at the Savile Row tailors.
According to an obituary today in the Times on line, he committed suicide on the eve of his mother's funeral.
May peace now embrace him.
