Today has been a very devastating day for the fashion industry; the talented, influential and inspirational fashion designer Alexander McQueen was found dead in his London flat this morning.
Having won four awards for the British Designer of the year and with a CBE under his belt, Alexander McQueen was one of the most iconic designers of our decade. He pushed boundaries with his designs, never afraid to try something new whether it be his 'bumster' trousers, or his recent most recent 'Armadillo' shoes.
His creativity was key to his collections, epitomised in the video below:
Hugely popular amongst the celebrity world, tributes have been made by Cheryl Cole and Kate Moss. Alexander Shulman, editor of Vogue has commented on his death:
"His brilliant imagination knew no bounds as he conjured up collection after collection of extraordinary designs. His death is the hugest loss to anyone who knew him and for very many who didn't."
Truly insiprational and one of a kind.
