Fashion Designer Alexander McQueen Discovered Dead at Age 40

As reported by Rebecca Camber and Sara Nathan on, British fashion designer Alexander McQueen was discovered dead today after taking his own life. The 40-year-old committed suicide just days after the death of his beloved mother, Joyce, last Tuesday. It is also just three years since his close friend, Isabella Blow – who plucked him from obscurity and helped him become a star – killed herself. McQueen, who was christened Lee but used his middle name for his label, was found at his luxury flat in Mayfair, central London. His death comes just days before the start of London Fashion Week and weeks before he was due to unveil his new collection at Paris Fashion Week on March 9.
