Alexander's McQueen funeral

Yesterday, January 25th, McQueen's private services took place at Knightsbridge, west London. Only family and friends were allowed at his funeral, to pay respect to the one of the greatest designer the world knew. His father and siblings were there, including of course Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Stella McCartney and Daphne Guinness.

Many of McQueen's family wore the tartan from Highland Rape, collection from winter 1995. Everyone wore black and stayed at the church for more than hour, after that coffin was pulled out laden in red, pink and white roses. There was also a hearse with "Lee" made in white flowers on the back.

A spokeswoman for McQueen's said a memorial service open to the designer's friends and supporters will occur this year. "We are focusing right now on the Paris show, which takes place on March 9," she added.

My lil' tribute to Lee Alexander McQueen.


  1. The world felt the lost of one of the greatest designers of his generation, I dont exactly know what the French retail luxury group PPR, which controls the McQueen brand will do to follow his legacy which for me is one of the hardest task in the history of a fashion brand but we must wait the next move of Francois-Henri Pinault.
