Britain loses a fashion legend

Last week a rumble of chatter worked its way around the office. “Oh my god” someone said. “Alexander McQueen has died”. In a stunned group reaction of utter horror and complete sadness, the news spread that this awful rumour was really true. As we welcome yet another London Fashion Week with the excitement it warrants, it will no doubt be overshadowed by the loss of such a talented British legend. Always excited by his sensational runway shows, I admired Lee’s bold showmanship, brave sense of rebellion and limitless creativity. Here are some of my favourite McQueen moments.
