A Legend in Our Time: Alexander McQueen

I am so saddened by the shocking news of the death of one of my favorite designers, Alexander
McQueen. I have featured looks from his collections on this blog several times as I was always inspired by his creative genious. I treasure the one handbag I own and the several I covet.
"I think it’s important to look at death, because it’s part of life. I’ve always had a fascination with the Victorian view of death— it’s not about brushing under the carpet like we do today, it’s more like celebrating someone’s life. I think it’s a very sad thing, death, a melancholic thing, but I think it’s a very romantic thing because I think it’s an end of a cycle. Everything has an end." Alexander McQueen
1969-2010

Here are five images of my favorite looks from his runway shows from over the past decade.
