Alexander McQueen Has Passed Away

>> The Daily Mail is reporting that Alexander McQueen has committed suicide at 40 in his apartment in Green Park, central London. A source at McQueen’s office confirmed his death, saying: ‘It is a tragic loss. We are not making a comment at this time out of respect for the McQueen family.' McQueen's death comes days after his mother passed away.

UPDATE #1: The McQ presentation that was to take place in New York today has been canceled.

UPDATE #2: WWD cites sources describing McQueen's death as suicide by hanging; the designer was found this morning and London police are not treating the death as suspicious.  He is survived by his father and five sisters and no funeral details have been made available.

McQueen's mother, Joyce, with whom he was close, passed away on Feb. 2, and her funeral had been scheduled for Friday, according to a McQueen spokesman.

As for how McQueen the company will move forward without the designer, a Gucci Group spokeswoman said that no business-oriented statements are currently being made.
