    That's really sad. I don't really know much about his clothes (not really an avid fashion follower) but I had heard of him and it's really sad that he felt so bad that he had to take his life.

    RIP.

    Alexander mcQueen was the reason I wanted to be a fashion designer. I am so sad because he did not just make pretty clothes, he was one of the most talented creators. His work was the product of creative thinking along with idea of beauty! Just what the world of fashion needed!

    I know he is a fashion designer due to the articles, but I meant that I've never heard of him.

    My favourite designer, with true passion and ideas that challenged fashion itself. He will be terribly missed.

    So sad
    I remember seeing the crazy armadillo shoes in the harvey nicks window a few months back and just being amazed by them. Such a talented, unique designer. RIP

    His expression in that photo taken from his friend's funeral is harrowing.

    Anyone else seen it?

    Also: isn't it sad how so many geniuses kill themselves. Why is it so common among them?

    Never heard of the guy.

    nice spelling though... 'HELLS ANGLES & PROLIFIC DEAMONS'

    And i wouldn't call a fashion designer a 'genius', but many genii commit suicide as they cannot comprehend an infinitely complex problem, but their persistance drives them to perfection, which sometimes they cannot achieve, and more importantly, cannot accept that they can't achieve.
