The McQueen is Dead

It saddens me deeply to hear that the iconic British designer, Alexander McQueen, 40 was found dead today. He was truly inspiring in his runway productions outing fashion as performance art. One of my favorite designers ever, McQueen elevated the runway then flew above it, he made it a stage and then flooded it; he seamlessly mixed Gothic Victorian styles with surrealist proportions, Renaissance headdresses with birds of paradise; and he crossed bones by introducing the skull as signature couture.

So break out your lovely skull scarves today and long live McQueen!
