Alexander McQueen 1969-2010

Every so often one gets a glimpse of one's own mortality. Such occasions recently included the death of Stephen Gately with whom I shared my two given names. Today it happened again with the passing of Lee Alexander McQueen, better known by his second name as the top British fashion designer. He was just over 6 months older than me. Born at almost totally the oposite end of the lunar circuit.

So here are a few glimpses at the genius of the man.

Here is a look at that 1999 Wierd Science show in more detail

Finally what better way to highllight the essence of Alexander McQueen than this Juxtoposition of him with Bjork from the Fashion Rocks show
