The first biography on the late Alexander McQueen is set to be released next month.

The designer committed suicide in February and fashion journalist Kristin Knox has already penned a book in tribute to him, entitled ‘Alexander McQueen, Genius of a Generation’.

The biography – to be produced by publishers A+C Black - will take a look back at the 40-year-old star’s glittering career, including 120 images of his most memorable creations as well his final, unfinished Autumn/Winter 2010 collection.

McQueen was born in London’s East End and was named British Designer of the Year on four occasions between 1996 and 2003 and made clothes for a whole range of high-profile stars, including Britain’s Prince Charles.

He was also awarded a CBE as well as being named International Designer of the Year at the Council of Fashion Designer Awards.

McQueen – real name Lee – was discovered hanged in a wardrobe at his London home by his cleaner on the eve of his beloved mother’s funeral on 11 February.

An inquest into his death was told he left a suicide note for his loved ones, which is believed to have been found at the scene.
