I've just heard the tragic news that wonderful, earthy, super-talented four-times British Designer of the Year, Alexander McQueen, is dead - at just 40 years old. I feel deeply shocked and just want to express my deepest condolences to his friends and family. What a loss for the fashion industry and all those who appreciate his beautiful designs. Rest in peace, Alexander!
