on waking up this morning i was deeply saddened to hear the sorrowful news of british fashion designer, Alexander McQueen's death. Known for his flamboyant and occasionally outrageous styles, the designer adored by celebrities was found dead in his London apartment, suspected suicide. Additional details attached to his death have not yet been released, but it can be said that at 10.30am relatives to McQueen were alerted that the top designer's body had been found, it is rumored he had hung himself.
suicide can be considered as the ultimate triumph of agency over structure. social and environmental factors can guide, influence and sometimes define and individuals behavior, and in these circumstances can engulf an individual.
RIP Alexander McQueen
your iconic designs, dramatic statement pieces, and impeccable tailoring will be missed xo
