The Daily Mail UK reports that Designer Alexander McQueen has taken his own life.
A sad day.
“The 40-year-old committed suicide just days after the death of his beloved mother, Joyce, last Tuesday.
It is also just three years since his close friend, Isabella Blow – who plucked him from obscurity and helped him become a star – killed herself.
McQueen, who was christened Lee but used his middle name for his label, was found at his luxury flat in Mayfair, central London. It is believed he hanged himself.
Police were called to the property at 10.20am this morning after he was found dead. A private ambulance arrived to take away his body at 4.30pm.
One of his lines, McQ, was due to be shown at New York Fashion Week this afternoon and has now been cancelled.”
