RIP Alexander McQueen.
Coincidentally, I saw him just a few weeks ago smoking outside his local gym in Paris.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/fe...shion-designerThe British fashion designer Alexander McQueen has been found dead at his London home at the age of 40.
His body was discovered at his property in Green Street, in the West End, shortly after 10am today. Paramedics were called but he was pronounced dead at the scene. A postmortem has been scheduled but police said his death was not being treated as suspicious. They would not comment on reports he had killed himself.
A spokeswoman for McQueen said: "Mr McQueen was found dead this morning at his home. We're devastated and I hope you understand that out of respect to his family and his colleagues we're not going to be making any further statement."
The death comes days before the start of London fashion week and a month before the designer was to unveil his new collection at Paris fashion week.
