rest in peace, alexander mcqueen.

the entire fashion industry and the general population has been mortified and shocked by the tragic news of alexander mcqueen's suicide that happened just today.
the world has truly lost one of the most fantastic creative geniuses to ever live.
in my eyes i saw him as a truly talented designer, and inspiration to so many people.
his loss is one that cannot be replaced. the news of his loss has caused me great sorrow and grief. his brilliant, wonderful, and original talent and work is something that is only seen once in time itself.
alexander mcqueen's designs were often described as "outlandish", "bizarre", and "otherworldly". he is noted to be favored among lady gaga, who frequently worn alexander's creations to events and shows alike. much of his clothes are worn by celebrities on and off the red carpet.
"Who knows, perhaps after flirting with death too often, death attracts you. There was always some attraction to death, his designs were sometimes dehumanised. I found his work very interesting, never banal."
--Karl Lagerfeld

here is some work i personally favored from his recent spring 2010 collection.

rest in peace, alexander mcqueen.
