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.

I feel so sorry that he felt this was his only option.
May he eternally rest among the angels.

I'm speechless and shocked. When I first heard about him, I started to cry.
Why do the most talented people have to die? I'm so indescribably sad.

Rest in peace, Alexander!

Mac said...

what an influential artist. he will be missed.

i found out via style.com at school today and i was devastated.

but as we know, only the good die young.

Anik said...

a great visionary is lost. this is tragic. His work was amazing. A true creative genius.

Kionon said...

But as McQueen said about the loss of his own mother, "Life must go on." And so it will. He has a legacy, and so, a part of him will always live on in each and every designer he has influenced.

Laura Lizeth* said...

so sad... he was so young!

Anna said...

so sad.

Yogchick said...

I will probably never know what it's like to have everything (fame, fortune, friends) and still want to die ... and I hope I never will. Regardless of Alexander McQueen's inner demons, the man made intriguing couture and when I think of British chutzpah, I think of McQueen. Elegant yet hard-edged and provocative, his designs were distinctly, surreally British.

christie said...

such an honest post.
he will be missed. -____-
rest in peace.

Eliani said...

True. Rest in peace McQueen.

I heard about it this morning from a random facebook update from this random scene kid I don't know.
Almost cried.
To make it worse, they were playing the music video for Bad Romance on the TV.

Maya Iman said...

You recoginzed his talents, he was truly amazing.

Ross said...

I kept hoping to wake up and it have all been an odd creepy dream. but its not, and I'am made sad.

When I read the news about him,I couldn't believe.I was in another world.The only thing that I did was cry.
Rest in peace Alexander,and very thank you.

Natasha said...

Oh my God. This is the worst news ever. Now I want to cry. Alexander McQueen was by far one of the most talented designers of his generation. RIP :(

Eyeliah said...

I was crying this morning and now you have me crying again. so tragic.

Megan V said...

Very well said, Tavi. I cried, too. He has no idea how much he will be missed!

Ashley said...

So tragic, so sad. Well said, Tavi. RIP McQueen.

Neekoh said...

Your words are so true and so well-put. You said everything I didn't know how to say. Perfect. RIP McQueen

HEK said...

Such a sad day.
He gave so much beauty to the world, and he will be missed.

Sammi said...

I was in shock. It's really just setting in now. He was such an amazing artist and will be dearly missed.

amelia said...

There will never be another. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bCShCcD3N0&feature=PlayList&p=0D3B6D90440B5AF4&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=19 Here is a post of his Givenchy collection, fall/winter 1999 and when he astonished the world of fashion with his visionary dress created on the runway. A legend, that will be truly missed forever. Rest in Peace.

mary jane said...

your words are perfect, thank you.

lianemarguerite said...

So sad. I mourn for the collections that never will be, and yet, as you said, I am so grateful to have seen what I did. A person made those clothes indeed.

munch-out said...

Such a shame, we will miss him!
You couldn't have said it better Tavi!

KD said...

Amen.

Emily said...

i cried when i found out. it's so tragic. i agree with you 100%. he was a true genius and i hope, for fashion's sake, that his name lives on

xx

Alexandra said...

God, it's so tragic. So soon after he produced one of the most acclaimed collections of the season.

What a loss.

Helen said...

I think you said beautifully what we all feel. Such a loss. I just hope that the work he's left behind keeps inspiring others to reach as far. I know it will.

Lilcocoloco said...

=(

i found a reason said...

the terrible thing is after knowing about his death i had no one to turn to, no one around my world who would know and appreciate what a genious he was. movie stars with not a quarter of his talent die and the whole planet seems to stop for a split of second. its a shame that i feel i cant be fair whit his greatness cause i cant share my feelings... and being silent about something is nearly the same as if that thing didnt exist. a genius, a man who created pieces that should be shown in museums, should be forever remembered and talked about. not just those interested in fashion should mourn: every sensible man or woman should. R.I.P

Katie said...

Those few sentences are more eloquent and true than anything I can even come to think of. It seems like all I can do is read articles and think and express my online emotions via emotions. He learned the rules and then he turned them on their heads...now he's gone and I know that the fashion world will never forget him. RIP

Rachel&Dakota said...

I began to cry when I found out. It's so difficult to grasp the death of such a young talent. He has definately left a mark on this world, and my friends and I miss him greatly. I do wish I had a chance to meet him. =(

Frenzy Mind said...

McQueen is a hero for many of us...
Indeed today is a very sad day...

Che Continua said...

No one will be able to replace him... Hopefully we will learn from his life...
Thank you Mcqueen

Sedera of the Island said...

Really well said, Tavi. Very moving. May he rest in peace.

Qi said...

Beautifully worded. I could not have said it better myself.

He was truly a sole to admire for his impeccable talent and creativity, and his bravery in delving into the fashion world in a way that few others dared.

Alexander McQueen,
Rest in peace.

So... ya. said...

One of the first shows I ever saw was his spring this year. It was brilliant and what really made me love fashion. I can't belive he is dead already. It's like falling in love and suddenly hearing on the radio that your lover suddenly died. I rarely cry but I think I might now.
Goodbye McQueen. You were amazing.

Erik Goldberg said...

I cried. Not going to hide it.
At first i sat there, just staring at my screen, MCQUEEN DEAD AT 40. Those words hurt me. How could someone so amazing die.... I then immersed myself in style.com archives. I looked at every single collection available. (And only now is the sadness of the event hitting me.)
RIP Alexander Mcqueen. This crazy world will miss you.
well put tavi.

tom-tom said...

You couldn't have said it better. Reading that almost made me cry, and while I loved McQueen usually I don't cry when people that I do not know die (of course there are exceptions).
When I see his designs/creations I think "My god, I wonder what goes on in the mind of this person, this is intense and amazing."
RIP

:'( nooooo! He cannot possibly be dead. :'( oh dear.

Hello, Tavi! I'm Jessica (: this is my first time visiting your blog, even though I've been seeing you everywhere lately! I have to say, even though I'm a nobody in the blogging/fashion world, you certainly are. I love your style, your writing technique, your hair, and your personality. ♥

Laura said...

Lovely tribute, Tavi.

Tastes Eclectic Fashion said...

I could hardly believe when my best friend told me as I left class early this morning. It completely devastated me. His work was such pure and wonder-inspiring beauty. My favorite designer from my first tiny steps into fashion, I am sure I would have broken into tears had this awful news not been delivered by my best friend.

What you have said is very beautiful.

Alexander McQueen, may you rest in peace. We will never forget what you have given us.

MAISON CHAPLIN said...

When I heard about this in the news i just started crying, it's so so sad, he was such a talented man and a wonderful person..

I miss you Lee.

Christina said...

2010 has been one blow after another so far. Howard Zinn and JD Salinger were very old, but Alexander was in his prime. It will take decades for another talent like him to develop.

Justin said...

Thak you so much for this beautiful eulogy, Tavi, I think it will be the only thing that gives me any sort of closure. I guess the only thing left to say is "don't get any ideas Galliano!"

C said...

Unbelievably sad news. He was an amazingly talented designer who left much much too soon! I went back through his archived runway collections and was so inspired, did a post with images of his work as far back as Spring 2005.

Isabelle said...

RIP Alexander McQueen

I'm so sad.I heard the news yesterday midnight.
His imaginative designs moved me any time.
RIP McQeen...

In-tree-gue said...

Mcqueen was a genius and as you said, his creations were just so ebulliant. They stood as a hallmark of human accomplishment and no one will ever be like him. His collections early/mid 2000s were magical and had this overwhelming creativity that just makes you wonder what this man has the we don't. He was the only one of his kind and he surpassed his time in everything he did. His presentations were unrivaled and i think it's best to just look at his work and remember him through his accomplishments, because he sure accomplished a lot. Rip Alexander MCqueen, he was one our generations geniuses

and as selfish as a reason as this may be, i'm really sad that we won't be seeing his a/w 10 collection

Kinder said...

Heartbreaking news. I cried when I first read the news online.

Clau! said...

so sad, R.I.P :(

octoberose said...

Your eloquence on the subject is much appreciated. I hope you don't mind, but I felt that you expressed the sentiment so well that I linked this entry in my own blog.

Hopefully this will inspire others to design more creatively in his honor.

The Photodiarist said...

Well said. In fact, you've said it better than most. I read another comment somewhere else today about this tragedy. The person wrote that she would miss the "anticipation of what would come next" from Mr. McQueen. So true.

Isabelle said...

my heart just stopped

Carina said...

When first hearing about it, I felt like someone just punched me in the chest...beautiful words Tavi

firefly said...

I can't believe this. Thanks, Tavi, for letting the world hear about this.

Rosie, Caddy and Chiara said...

This is a great tribute to him. He really did some amazing things that we should be thankful for.

Thank you Alexander. May you rest in peace.

Great tribute Tavi. R.I.P. Alex!

Mr. Jerry Seguin said...

i'm still in shock and it's all been said already, but what an incredible mark he's left on the industry. we're truly minus one of the most visionary and uncomprimised designers of our generation.

Rest in peace, Alexander McQueen. Those shoes were, are, and always will be SICK, in the best possible way. Tavi, take care.

Emma said...

Alexander McQueen is one of the designers that made me fall in love with fashion. I cannot imagine fashion weeks without him. When I heard the news, this morning, via twitter, I started crying really hard. The walk to school and the day at school was really tough. I started to cry during math. I was so touched by him because he changed the way I look at fashion, and, I am sure, how many other people looked at fashion. At least, his final collection was so amazing. But, it would be wonderful to see more from him. Your post is so heart felt. No one can replace him. Noe what? Like you said, he will be remembered in the numorous good reviews of his shows, and the editorials that gulped up his works of art. May he rest in peace and know that everyone here, loves him and will smile and say wow to all of his creations, for years to come.

Hilary said...

He was one of the most creative designers on this planet. RIP :[

You're incredibly eloquent. This made me start crying all over. He will be missed.

Quite simply devastating!
He will be sadly missed and never forgotten.

Still can't believe it. So sad.

e-ero said...

i am sad beyond words! this quote by lee mcqueen helped me with all my creative stuff since i first read it.

-I use things that people want to hide in their heads. War, religion, sex: things we all think about but don’t bring them to the forefront. But I do and I force them to watch it-

Pashupati said...

Holy crap.
Everybody, let's stop dying until next year!
Anyway, maybe he thought he was "done" with his life, something like that.

I'm just a lil' interior designer in LA. This news hit me harder than I thought it would. It's terrible to see someone who had so much vision disappear. Sadness is a strange thing but so is hope--uhhhmmm now I'm the bizarre one..obviously. The heart hurts but the head moves forward. -and yes I was listening to 'don't stop believing' by journey when I wrote this.

The first thing I did upon hearing the news was to look at the style.com archives. We can pay memory to him by even further appreciating his genius...

Misery said...

When I first heard about this, I thought it was some kind of awful, macabre joke. I wish it wasn't true, really. He was only 40 years old.

McQueen is Dead. Long live McQueen.

Angeles Almuna Design said...

Agree with you.....it's so difficult to write something about him, my heart is broken and I hope now he is in peace.....
Kisses Lady Tavi

Stef said...

Wow. They are the most inspiring words I have heard about him and all I needed. I loved him, he was so amazing. He was the reason I started following fashion. I just loved him and I've been crying ever since I found out. He was such a huge influence on my life, and I really miss him.
Everyone has a favourite celebrity, and he was mine, if he would call himself a celebrity.
My friends are making it worse too, they don't understand my love of fashion. When I told them I didn't do my homework because I found out Alexander McQueen died, the first thing they said was 'who?'
Then my friend asked me was he gay.
I mean, really.

OH nonon he's dead I love him c'etait un des meilleur créteur le meilleur c'était celui qui me tenait le plus au coeur avec rei

Molly Rose said...

it's so saddening that such an amazing designer is gone, it's so sad that we never get to look forward to what his new collections and everything in them anymore.

It can't be true, it just can't!

stylespotterfashionblogger said...

The man was a creative genius.. He was an extraordinarily talented artist. There was more to his clothes than any than other designers. So so sad that he was so troubled. I thank him for his creations and will cherish any little pieces of his collections that I own. I will hold onto them so tight!

think sometimes the most deeply artistic and intellectual of us may be so continually and profoundly conflicted with this world, that it becomes impossible to reconcile it with who and what we are and believe. Maybe because artists are so closely connected to the Divine, the Universe, God, (whatever one chooses to name it) That it conflicts so deeply, so strongly, that we lose the desire to fight it all... Just a thought. RIP McQ!

Jeannette said...

Hello Tavi, I read about you in a local paper...out on the western coast, so I perused your blog.
I was glad to read this sentence of yours in one of your recent posts. "While I often feel that it's very possible that sincerity will one day be nonexistent, it's still here..."

Your tender eulogy for A. McQueen made me feel for a person hitherto unknown to me. Sincerity is indeed still here. Take good care of yourself...

p.s. I think you should learn to sew, you'd have great fun.
with best wishes, Jeannette

dear tavi, is this photo taken by yourself? if yes you can be happy (excuse me if that sounds misplaced!), he is looking so friendly open mind warm lovely little bit curious towards the camera and towards the person who took that picture. if once souls touched each other, they are not lost even if there bodys will be separeted by death. if even you didn`t take the picture but you met him i`m shure you were touched by each other.
cry about his death but imagine you`ve still a liaison with him, you`re not lost and so he isn`t! (please excuse my bad english), juju

obsessive said...

so so sad :-(

Beth. said...

You're so right; he was head and shoulders above the designers of his generation. But we must be thankful that his work wll inspire millions, and that maybe more designers as great as Alexander will break into the fashion industry because of him.

Hearing that McQueen died was probably the saddest thing that could ever happen in the fashion world. His creations had to be one of the most historical ones because how intricate they were, and also how much love and passion that he put into each and every piece he designed. He truly was one of the worlds most well known, inspiring, and amazing designers out there. He may be gone from our earth, but he will never be gone in our hearts. We miss you dearly McQueen, rest in peace.

It was never time for someone like him to go.

He had so much to give, he is one strong pillar in the industry.

It's gonna be crippled for a long while.

We'll miss him so much!

Lost potential is a terrible thing in a world where we find ourselves so lacking in creative inspiration on an everyday basis. Sadly, this is precisely the situation in which we find ourselve. Sometimes, there is little we can do but mourn.

I agree with you completely. He was such a talented person that really did leave a lot of us thinking "Jesus, a person made this...". With every collection I was left with a feeling of happiness for the future and longing to see what he'd do next. I can only hope that the fashion designers of our time continue in his foot steps by creating something truly amazing and inspiring.
