We were all saddened and shocked by the news of Alexander McQueen’s tragic death yesterday. The fashion world has lost one of its greats, across the globe celebs he famously dressed and fellow designers have paid tribute to fashion icon Alexander McQueen.

Sarah Jessica Parker:
‘I am shocked and overcome with grief upon learning about the untimely death of the quiet genius Alexander McQueen. My heart goes out to his family and all those who worked for and with him.
What is more devastating is that despite all his success thus far, creatively, critically and commercially, his greatest achievements lay ahead of him. The future would be whatever he hoped to make of it.
God speed Lee. It has been a privilege for all of us to know you. You will be indescribably missed.’

Kate Moss (via spokesperson):
‘Kate is shocked and devastated at the tragic loss of her dear friend Lee McQueen. Her thoughts are with his family at this sad time.’

‘MCQueen was a master of fashion, creative genius and an inspiration. Today the fashion industry has lost a true great, an icon of all time. He made all he touched beautiful and will be desperately missed.’

Naomi Campbell:
‘I am truly devastated to lose my close friend. His talent had no boundaries and he was an inspiration to everyone who worked with him and knew him. This is a sad day to all who loved him around the world and my condolences are with his family. I will miss him so much, he will never be forgotten.’

Karl Lagerfeld:
‘I found his work very interesting and never banal. There was always some attraction to death, his designs were sometimes dehumanised. Who knows, perhaps after flirting with death too often, death attracts you.’

Matthew Willamson:
‘I am shocked and deeply saddened by McQueen’s death. He was a genius and his talent was second to none.
Like many others, I always cited him as a hugely inspirational leader of world fashion. He will be greatly missed.’

Paul Smith:
‘He was a very talented and creative designer, especially in respect of his tailored clothing. This is a very sad time and my thoughts are with his family.’

Stella McCartney:
‘Lee was a fashion genius. I don’t say that lightly, and it is a total shock that I am referring to him in the past tense.
He was a real friend. I will miss him as a mate, a peer, and as a true British talent, full of life and energy in everything he ever did.’
