(alexander mcqueen, 'plato's atlantis', spring 2010)
speaking of saying goodbye, we have also had to farewell to lee alexander mcqueen who died suddenly last thursday. to say that he was an amazing designer is a huge understatement.
the tragedy of his passing has been felt around the globe, with naomi campbell's 'fashion for relief - haiti' show acting as a tribute to the inimitable mcqueen. the supermodel joined with other industry heavyweights (or should that be lightweights?) helena christensen, karen elson, angela lindvall, heidi mount, sasha pivovarova and natasha poly in parading designs from his 'plato's atlantis' spring 2010 collection. his muse and close friend, daphne guinness (pictured below, centre) wore a glittering, bespoke alexander mcqueen catsuit that was a gift to her from the designer shortly before his death..
