Death is a Star
Designer Alexander McQueen was found dead at his London home on February 11, 2010. A man whose talent was appreciated throughout the industry, whose work was revered around the globe as art, whose imagination was boundless, without constraint or inhibitions. What the world lost when McQueen left, yesterday morning, was inevitable and fated inspiration. What Mcqueen's close family and friends lost yesterday was Mcqueen as a person. It's undeniable that Mcqueen pushed boundaries with his garments. With his costumey garb and nigh fatal footwear, Mcqueen will not be forgotten. Yes, one of the great icons of fashion is gone. But what will come of this is the greatest respect of his body of work. Mcqueen left behind his art, and that's one thing that will never perish. Let his death only immortalize him. Let the name of Mcqueen be heard, and let it be canonized.
