 Lee Alexander McQueen, CBE (17 March 1969 – 11 February 2010) was a British fashion designer and couturier best known for his in-depth knowledge of bespoke British tailoring, his tendency to juxtapose strength with fragility in his collections, as well as the emotional power and raw energy of his provocative fashion shows. He is also known for having worked as chief designer at Givenchy from 1996 to 2001 and for founding his own label under the name Alexander McQueen His achievements in fashion earned him four British Designer of the Year awards (1996, 1997, 2001 and 2003), as well as the CFDA's International Designer of the Year award in 2003.

McQueen's death was announced on the afternoon of 11 February 2010. He was found that morning by his housekeeper at his home on Green Street, London W1, hanged. Paramedics were called and they pronounced him dead at the scene.

Lee’s accomplishments are far too many to list, suffice it to say, his is a talent that shall be missed, and in fact is. I blogged on his Savage Beauty exhibit at The Met, which I saw twice, an awesome exhibit. Showing now is the Daphne Guinness exhibit at The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) which showcase many pieces from McQueen, running September 16, 20011 – January 7, 2012.
