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.

I've never worn any of his clothes as they are WAY expensive for me...but....Suicide is be in that place where you feel the need to murder yourself, is terrifying to think how someone with so much to live for could even glance, much less venture down such a path. Such a dark act....and now all those that loved him will have to live with the fact that he didn't feel he could reach for support. I hate that he did really pisses me off...
