R.I.P. McQueen....

Just found out that british designer Lee McQueen has been found dead after taking his own life....  :(

"The 40-year-old committed suicide just days after the death of his beloved mother, Joyce, last Tuesday.
It is also just three years since his close friend, Isabella Blow - who plucked him from obscurity and helped him become a star - killed herself.
McQueen, who was christened Lee but used his middle name for his label, was found at his luxury flat in Mayfair, central London. It is believed he hanged himself.
One of his contemporary lines, McQ, was scheduled to be shown at New York Fashion Week this afternoon."

From his Twitter the 7th of February: “sunday evening been a ****ing awful week but my friends have been great but now i have to some how pull myself together.”
