mourning the enfant terrible

I'm reeling.

It is difficult to picture the fashion world without Lee Alexander McQueen. I'd like to imagine him having tea right now with his mother and Isabella Blow, in some fantastic, hat filled afterlife.

Best wishes to his family.

Three of many favourites:
Shalom's spray painted ballgown, Kate's angelic hologram, and Deconstruction.

Yes, this was sad news. I was in Paris the day YSL died and it was such a city-wide, end-of-an-era moment. It was the right place to be to absorb and digest this news. There was even a special edition of the newspaper. Hearing the McQ news made me wonder where one should have been to hear it. NYC wasn't the place -- perhaps London?

Yes, I think London would have been the place.

I agree. I will definitely be feeling the absence of McQueen's work during fashion week. He was one of the best designers ever. Shalom's ballgown is one of my favorite looks, too. Great blog... would you be interested in trading links? :)

Sure. Dashing now - will add you later today.
