Lee McQueen ... King of the tailored dress. I am lucky to have a few pieces which I will treasure, he could make a real woman with real boobs and muffin tops look sexy and sirenesque I will miss him he was my hero x Great post I love a red dress x
Wildernesschic - this is so awful as his mum died last week. He must have been so grief stricken. Dreadful loss and selfishly I'd scheduled to interview him next month although I was anticipating it being rescheduled. It was about red dresses of course. His poor family must be devastating for his siblings
Lovely tribute to a huge talent. He will be missed.
I am still in shock. Truly it feels as if it can't be. I have so many of his pieces.
Hi there-a lovely tribute post Kate and totally devastating news, he was a true talented genius who will be sadly missed, such a tragedy indeed.
I have just seen the news and am in total shock.
hi lovely dresses..so sad waht happend..http://newsbeautymodacultura.blogspot.com/
So very sad when I found out this morning - he graduated a couple of years ahead of me at Art School. So full of talent RIPxxxx
Oh, Kate - I didn't know that his mother just died. Maybe he was delerious with grief? I'm so sorry that he's gone - and that we won't have the benefit of your great interview with him to know him better.
Shocking. Sad. Awful.
So fucking sad.
sad, isn't it? augh.
Poor troubled soul. Unbearable to think about his frame of mind.
tribute. i'm still sad so schoking
Thank you everyone - he has been such an influential person and in some ways we've taken it all for granted - the visual spectacle, the shows, the clothes. After all for Lee it was a job, a job he loved and was brilliant at but we forget the person in our adoration of the design. Sometimes the design is prized more than the person and that distorts ones sense of self.
He will be so missed, ahh that red pleated dress is amazingp.s you got an award on my blog!
Such sad news. And am amazing collection of red dresses!
A lovely tribute to a fashion genius. Terribly sad and tragic, esp. considering his mom's death.
So bloody sad, and such a huge loss for London fashion. Poor guy. xx
