    Default It's raining British fashion designers.

    RIP Alexander McQueen.

    Coincidentally, I saw him just a few weeks ago smoking outside his local gym in Paris.

    The 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.

    yea I posted a quote of his on the default thread. cr*****


    rip


    McQueen was openly gay. He described coming out a young age: "I was sure of myself and my sexuality and I've got nothing to hide. I went straight from my mother's womb onto the gay parade".

    Oh no! I love his stuff. Right next to a Chanel suit, my "if I make a ton of money" splurge purchase was going to be a wacky McQueen dress

    Hopefully.

    My only thoughts and comments are to say, that it is so hard to be so incredibly creative AND incredibly outgoing. You end up risking everything merely to be yourself. The stress of simply BEING can get overwhelming.

    Well, you know what they say about fashion: one day you're in, and the next day you're out.

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    As I expected, McQueen was a big topic over here today. One girl, in a class, had trouble breathing when she learned the news, and she ran out of the classroom, crying.
