Latest News – The fashion designer Alexander McQueen has died, his company has said. His office confirmed to the BBC that Mr McQueen, 40, was found dead at his London home on Thursday morning.  BBC News website readers have been sending in their memories of the designer.

According to Wall Street Journal, after it was announced Thursday that Alexander McQueen had died, the designer’s Twitter feed was removed, on which he revealed on Feb. 3 that his mother passed away the day before. A few days later he said, “Sunday evening been an F—-g awful week but my friends have been great, but now I have to some how [sic] pull myself together and finish with the…”

On Feb. 1, a couple of weeks after his Fall 2010 menswear show, he posted, “From heaven to hell and back again, life is a funny thing. Beauty can come from the most strangest of places even the most disgusting places.” A few minutes later, he posted: “Why people ignore the ugly things in life but within this they are missing the beauty that lies under the rotten fruit!!!!!!!!!!!!”

On Feb. 3, he tweeted that his mother had passed away the day before. “RIP mumxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx,” he said. And a few minutes later: “But life must go on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

His last tweet, sometime after Feb. 7, said: “I’m here with my girl Annie Tinkerbell wishing Kerry the slag, happy birthday in NY, your [sic] 40 now girl time to slow it down we think.”

Alexander McQueen was the quintessential bad boy made good, rising from London’s East End via couture house Givenchy to his own label to become one of Britain’s best known and most unique designers.

McQueen, who died in London on Thursday aged 40, mixed classic Savile Row tailoring with a sense of theatricality and a love of the provocative.

In his early career he was described as a “maverick”, “enfant terrible”, “rough diamond” and even “hooligan”, but those terms belied the crucial secret of his success — his immense talent as a tailor and designer.

His clothes were loved by celebrities including Cate Blanchett and Kate Moss, who said she was “devastated” at his death, while couture supremo Karl Lagerfeld said in his tribute that he was always interesting, “never banal.”

He was born Lee Alexander McQueen on March 17, 1969, in London, one of six children supported by their taxi driver father. He left school at 16 and was immediately taken on as an apprentice in the home of British tailoring, London’s Savile Row.
