Fashion designer Alexander McQueen found dead at home in London

Iconic fashion designer Alexander McQueen was found dead in his London home Thursday morning, with the cause unconfirmed but suspected to be suicide.

McQueen, 40, who went by “Lee,” had an eccentric style and defied the traditional limits reached by most designers. His latest men’s collection debuted in January in Italy. The show incorporated textures and patterns of grays and muted colors. Many of the models wore masks reminiscent of those made of chainmail and worn by knights.
His death comes just one week before London’s Fashion Week. Though McQueen was not scheduled to show, the official Web site for the event said: “He was a unique talent and one of the world’s greatest designers. Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this sad time.” provided this statement: “On behalf of Lee McQueen’s family, Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen Brand has been found dead at his home. At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with Lee’s family.”
