Fashion designer Alexander McQueen was found dead today at the age of 40. At this point, the only detail we know is that he did, in fact, take his own life. Alexander’s office released the following statement, “It is a tragic loss. We are not making a comment at this time out of respect for the McQueen family.”
The timing of Alexander’s death happened to line up with the launch of his new line, McQ, which was to be presented at New York Fashion week today. The PR company handling the show has since announced that it has been cancelled.
