Alexander McQueen Fashion Label To Continue

02/18/2010 at 10:29 AM ET


While the world still mourns the death of British designer Lee McQueen, founder and creative director of the Alexander McQueen label, after his suicide last week, WWD reports today that the fashion brand will soldier on. “We believe in the future of the brand. Lee was very proud of the people working in his company, and so am I.” said Robert Polet, president and chief executive officer of the Gucci Group, which has a majority stake in the McQueen line. Though the New York fashion show for the designer’s contemporary label, McQ, was abruptly canceled the day of McQueen’s passing, the runway presentation for the Alexander McQueen collection will be held on March 9 during Paris Fashion Week. – Emily Hsieh

sb obviously you’ve never experienced the pain that one feels after losing someone extremely close.It can be an unbearable pain.People handle it differently. What an inconsiderate thing to say, grow up. A life lost no matter how is a tragic thing.
