McQueen is one of those creative geniuses that the world lost much too soon. He will always be in the fashion world's heart, inspiring and compelling all in the industry to move forward, innovate, and stay true to their hearts.

Simply amazing collages and I like the vintage feel for it. Great job on the c overage. Favoriting : ). He will always be remembered, but it makes me wonder if he would have produced great masterpieces if he wasn't ill (I've been seeing trends like Picasso, von Gogh, etc.) : (. Nonetheless, he will always be revered for his creativity.

Beautiful post and photos! The visuals really capture all aspects of his career. It's not secret that we LOVE Alexander McQueen, sometimes we feel like a broken record referencing him in our EIU posts and style posts but it's hard to not be so completely inspired by his work and ideas. His creations define fashion, everything anyone could ever desire from the industry lied in his work.

Thanks, I'm happy you like it! When I was working on this article, I remembered that post you did for EIU about paying tribute to your favorite designers with your own style...went back and referenced it and was even more inspired! When I took this article on, I didn't actually know that much about McQueen (only that I liked his designs), but now I can't know enough! He truly was an icon.

Fantastic blog. I have always been a huge fan of McQueen (unfortunately, I could never afford his clothes). Your blog says it all - he was a visionary and will be missed. I'm glad that his legacy will live on. My favorite quote by him is "British fashion is self confident and fearless" <3
