The amazingly unconventional British Designer, Alexander McQueen was found dead at his home yesterday. At the age of 40, his premature death is being pointed at an apparent hanging suicide. Speculation suggests that pressure to perform as well as last season and his mothers recent death are to blame for his slum into depression.
This is really tragic news, as demand for his designs have been at boiling point in recent times with praise coming from all corners from the fashion industry, fashion icons and celebrities. His designs became icons including the Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf and Armadillos shoes.
His Spring 2010 collection will be his final and best show with dramatic silhouettes, intricate detailing, sci-fi hair and inspired heels clutch purses.
Here are photos from Style.com of his Final Collection.
