Alexander McQueen: Dead of Apparent Suicide

by at . Comments

Alexander McQueen, an internationally known and respected fashion designer, was found dead today in his London home.

Sources are reporting that McQueen committed suicide, as the UK media organization Sky News says he hanged himself in his apartment. No official cause of death has been released, however.

The 40-year-old British designer was often responsible for outfits worn by such stars as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Prince Charles.

Said rep from McQueen's office in a statement:

"At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with [McQueen's] family."

A new line from the artist, McQ, was set to be debut this afternoon at New York Fashion Week. He was also scheduled to premiere his new collection at Paris Fashion Week on March 9.

Our thoughts go out to McQueen's friends, family and loved ones.

Your right about all of this! i didnt know much about him but was looking at his designs and it came to me that they represent the cult a lot..so i just googled his name with illumanti and this came up!!...too many have died on the 'freedom train' which they call it..when they dont need you they kill you!...like MJ...and many many more!

Oh, this is really, really sad... I remember the first time I ever saw his things. It was in London and I bought a beautiful scarf with sculls for my fiancee. Last weekend my fiancee brought me home a fantastic handbag designed by Alexander McQueen. My first - and obviously also my last, as it turned out. My thoughts goes to his family...

Go to the "Lady Gaga" link provided in the article to see the hoop dress where she carries a star in her hand. There's another outfit designed that speaks to the bankers doing the London attacks. She's wearing an outfit that looks like a London or NYPD police officer partially stripped of clothes by explosives and covered in human ash and nanothermite.
