A Life Remembered: Alexander McQueen

We all knew we would be saying goodbye to Bryant Park when the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York started.

But none of us probably imagined we would be saying adieu to designing talent, Alexander McQueen.

No doubt, many are saddened by his death.

In reflecting, I’m choosing to take a look at many of the great and memorable moments he helped shape in the fashion world.

RIP, McQueen.
