Fashion Week Begins With a Bang

Ports 1961, Richard Chai, BCBGMAXAZRIA, and more kick off Fashion Week Fall 2010 today. And although this is the start of an exciting week filled with amazing runways and beautiful models, it started off somberly.
British fashion designer, capable of bringing amazing designs to the runway, was found dead in his house this morning. Committing suicide, the designer is said to have been extremely upset of his mother's death, who had passed away days before.

His lower-priced line, McQ was supposed to show today, but due to his death it was immediately canceled.
McQueen brought unique-ness to his designs as well as the set. He never failed to bring awe, and even tears once, to the eyes of the audience.

Known for pushing up the bar, McQueen showed crazy prints, snakeskin, and heels that have never been seen anywhere else. His theatrical-like runway was simply amazing. No words can really describe how much of his passion for design and style were shown through his works.

As Fashion Week continues, it'll be evident that Alexander McQueen is no longer there, but his works will definitely live on to carry his name.
