Fashion designer Alexander McQueen, age 40, was found dead in his London apartment on February 11, 2010. Rumors speculate that McQueen, overwhelmed by the very recent death of his mother, ended his life.
Whatever the reason, we've lost an artist who's brilliant disregard for conventional fashion influenced and amazed the world. His work transcended beyond the echelon of top designers, into pure artistry. He was an undeniable genius and incomparable to any other.
