A Sad Day in the Fashion World
Everyone says that they will remember where they were when they heard that Princess Diana died. True, I do. But I will always remember where I was when I heard that the amazingly talented and gifted McQueen had passed away.
I was on my way to do a window display for a store in Gastown, Vancouver when a friend BBMed me and told me the shocking news. While I didn't cry, I did feel the world was being robbed of such an amazing designer.
I had never met the man, but a lot of my own designs are inspired by his collections.Strange, weird, different.
I extend my condolences to his family. Farewell Alexander McQueen.
