“We are devastated to learn of the death of Alexander McQueen, one of the greatest talents of his generation. He brought a uniquely British sense of daring and aesthetic fearlessness to the global stage of fashion. In such a short career, Alexander McQueen’s influence was astonishing — from street style, to music culture and the world’s museums. His passing marks an insurmountable loss.”
– Anna Wintour
“He was…an arch romantic with a pessimistic streak. It produced some of the most beautiful, shocking images in the history of fashion.” – Tim Blanks, Style.com
