So sad about the news of Alexander McQueen’s death

I was shocked to hear on The Cut today that designer Alexander McQueen was found dead, reportedly due to suicide, just days after his mother passed away on February 2.  My heart goes out to his family and friends for their loss and he will certainly be sorely missed in the fashion world.  Some of his most ground-breaking work came in the form of the 10-inch “alien” shoes shown in his spring 2010 show in Paris:

These were unlike anything anybody had seen before and a prime example of fashion as art.  I think everyone was looking forward to what McQueen would come up with next and it’s so tragic that we’ll never know.
