1969-2010

He consistently delivered collections of extravagant creativity, the type of stuff where you just look at it and try to absorb it and you can't believe a person made this. Being lucky enough to gaze at a glimpse into such an artist's vision, and knowing that you can't even imagine everything that was put into making it, and suddenly feeling so happy and joyful about humanity, and life, because, Jesus, a person made this..is incredibly uplifting. Very rarely are we blessed with a talent so strong and unparalleled and a passion so pure and driven.
It's taken me an hour to write these few sentences, and it seems like all I've been able to do since hearing the news is cry. But now it's time to go back in the style.com archives, in my magazines, to every photo I've collaged and tacked on my wall, and appreciate everything he poured his life into.
So thank you, Alexander McQueen. Rest in peace.

Tavi! I love your style and the way you say what you think about fashion! Also what you say about Hayao Miyazaki and his movies, not everyone appreciates him, its good to know I'm not the only one (: Mexico says hi!

I am really saddened to hear news about this, I couldn't get over it until now. I discovered 6 months ago along with his unique and genius work and I find out only last week that he passed on for no reason why...

I'm really depressed...the fashion word lost a IMO the most pioneered designers in history... :<

We will all miss his passion and his talent. A few words I wrote too in a different language (greek).

It's funny because I never met him, and now I never will, but I still feel such a great loss. When this happened, I have a friend, who compared this to the death of J.D. Salinger, and how those with no experience with the person will try and make things seem more real for them than they are, and more sad. But I can't help it, I am sad. And I will be. I think it was 2005, around, when he did the plaid line, as well as the McQueen for target line. And I was just starting to get into fashion, he's had such a strong hold on my own design aesthetic since then. Without ever knowing him he's pushed me to push my mind as far out of and off the wall as possible. He opened up a world for designers to be absolutely all that we can be because there is always more to strive for. Not to say that anyone should try and copy, nothing I've ever made looks anything like McQueen, but it's just the idea that the "the sky is the limit." Don't except boundaries on your creativity. Clothes is just clothes sometimes, but sometimes it's art, and I really feel like he's made a lot of young girls with fashion dreams, look at what they're creating, and really put everything they have into it. Because if you can design and just allow yourself to be mediocre then you're not doing this man, this brilliant man, justice. And you shouldn't be allowed to be in the same field.
