Alexander McQueen Dead at 40


I am shocked right now...fashion designer Alexander McQueen was found dead early this morning in his London apartment. Right now their is no official cause of death but media sources say his death may be the result of an apparent suicide.

McQueen's fashions has been featured on Nu Kynk numerous times. I absolutely think he was a genius when it came to designing beautiful and memorable clothing. I extend my condolences to his family and friends.

I was also surprised and saddened to read about McQueen's death. I was never a fan of the aesthetics of his work. But i always appreciated that he was a brilliant tailor and craftsman who could mold tons of fabric into a creation that floated down a runway. And he was so young, too. His mother passed away weeks ago, maybe his grief was too much to bear. I read earlier his mentor Isabella Blow also committed suicide in 2007. So sad.

Yes it is, maybe it was too much for him. I'm never happy when I hear that someone commits suicide, he had so much to live for...

It's just crazy. I can't believe it. He was so young! A good friend of his committed suicide I think a few years back, maybe that affected him?

He definitely had his own style. But there was always a method to his madness. I liked his geometric leggings most of all. I was just recently introduced to his work not too long ago. His work is everywhere in Lady Gaga's bad romance video.
