Alexander McQueen Has Committed Suicide


Alexander McQueen, one of fashion’s consummate inconoclasts and showmen, has committed suicide at age 40, a spokeswoman confirmed.

“Mr. McQueen has been found dead at his house this morning,” she said, declining further comment.

A statement from PPR, parent of Gucci Group and the McQueen company, is expected shortly. Circumstances of his death were not revealed and a spokesman declined comment.

McQueen’s mother recently died and the designer was known to be extremely close to her, although it could not be learned whether this contributed to his death.

McQueen burst onto the London fashion scene with a mix of aggression, energy and creativity that reinvigorated the city’s reputation and made his shows the hottest ticket in town.

This is truly a sad moment and our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones.
