London Fashion Week autumn/winter 1996

The suicide of renowned fashion designer Alexander McQueen a few days before the beginning of the London Fashion Week has shocked the fashion world. Why he took this extreme step is shrouded in mystery. Police are investigating the reasons of this sudden and most unexpected death of a fashion designer who took the world by storm with his creations. Some say his decision was because he could not bear the death of his mother just a few days earlier – he was very close to Joyce, his mother. He had commented about his mental state of mind in Twitter. Earlier, he had lost his friend Isabella Blow in 2007. She was an inspiration for him – she had bought his entire collection in the mid 90s when Alexander launched his career. He was named the British designer of the year for 4 times between 1996 and 2003 and received the CBE. May his soul rest in peace.
