“During the newspaper interview when McQueen revealed his fear of dying before his mother, she had asked him: “What makes you proud?”

“You,” he replied. “Why?” she queried. “No, ask the next one,” said McQueen. It was the only question he refused to answer.”

“I’m 40 now, but I want this to be a company that lives way beyond me, and I believe that customers are more important to making that happen than press. When I’m dead, hopefully this house will still be going. On a spaceship. Hopping up and down above earth.” – Alexander McQueen during LOVE Magazine – link

“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.

Lee’s family has asked for privacy in order to come to terms with this terrible news and we hope the media will respect this.”

Rest in Peace, Lee McQueen and my heart & prayers goes out to all his friends and loved ones.
