The only time I ever pre-ordered a collection of makeup at MAC, was when Alexander McQueen debuted his line with them. The electric hues juxtaposed with the earth tone shades called my name. And much like his fashion sense, the interesting arrangement of his Fall ’07 colors (below) just works.
Fall 2007– and it’s still fashion forward.
Spring 2010 – and we are now left with a late visionary hero in the fashion/design/ and art world.
His influence transcended the fashion world and inspired artists, beauticians, musicians and other top designers.
Lee Alexander McQueen, 40, British founder and lead designer of all that is Alexander McQueen, was announced dead yesterday at his home, with rumored suicide. But his edgy avant-garde sense of fashion will live forever.
Known for his baroque, daring assymmetry, and never “safe” designs – McQueen’s dresses and clothing line have been spotted on A-List celebrities like Victoria Beckham, Beyoncé, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Rihanna.
He will continue to be fashion forward, even after death.
