    ‘Gay culture secretary Ben Bradshaw added: “Alexander McQueen made an outstanding contribution to British fashion”.’

    There’s really nothing I can add to all the complimentary comments in this article about McQueen’s groundbreaking designs.

  2. What a talented man and creative genius, not just a fashion designer; but an artist who painted three dimensionally with textiles using the human body as his canvas.

    A tragic loss, but a man whose talent was recognised, admired and revered across the world.

    When in the 60s hem lines were raised so that the world was your gynaecologist, in the 80s and 90s McQueen slashed them . . . with echo’s of the great artist Lucio Fontana’s amazing slashed canvas, not to mention the sexual connotations.

    It is so sad when heterosexuals accuse us of not understanding heterosexuality.

    McQueen was also accused of being a misogynist because of the brutality and bleakness of his work. More enlightened critics and feminists argued that as a gay man, he understood the bondage and shackles that heterosexuals women often have to endure; sexually and emotionally in relation to men.

    It is not such a surprise that he should kill himself when is mum died, he really did love women.
