Estou em choque. Morreu Alexander MacQueen
British fashion icon Alexander McQueen kills himself
Alexander McQueen, one of Britain's most successful fashion designers, has been found dead at his home in London.
A source close to the 40-year-old said that he appeared to have committed suicide although his office refused to comment. His death comes days after the death of his mother.
The East End-born designer started his professional life as a tailor's apprentice on Savile Row, where his clients included Mikhail Gorbachev and the Prince of Wales, before enrolling at the Central St Martins School of Art and Design.
His early runway collections relied largely on the shock factor, but McQueen hit the mainstream when he was chosen to succeed John Galliano at Givenchy in 1996.
Agências noticiosas afirmam que alegadamente McQueen se terá enforcado. Tudo aponta para que o designer não tenha aguentado a dor da morte da Mãe, que faleceu a semana passada.
Triste, muito triste. Estou chocada. Poucos terão a genialidade e a loucura de McQueen e o conseguirão transmitir em fashion design.
