On behalf of Lee McQueen's family, Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen brand has been found dead at his home. At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with Lee's family.
Lee's family has asked for privacy in order to come to terms with this terrible news and we hope the media will respect this.

Although I'm not a great believer in suicide, McQueen' death is heartbreaking. He was gradually changing the fashion world, and had so many dreams and goals to change the future of fashion, that it feels as though today, the fashion world has come to a pause to remember a great designer.
