Alexander McQueen, legendary British fashion designer, is reported to have been found dead this morning at his home in London.

Starting out as a Saville Row apprentice, he later trained at Central St Martins, notably succeeding John Galliano as head designer of Givenchy in 1996 (-2001) which launched him into wider public consciousness. Known for his unconventional, dramatic designs and fashion shows, McQueen’s company has grown from strength to strength, with successful boutiques operating internationally. He will be missed by many, not least the fashion world and his loyal celebrity following.
