My day officially started when this image hit my inbox this morning. Was I tired from a late night shoot? Yes. Do I still need coffee as I type this? Yes. Does anything else matter when the name McQueen is brought up? Hell to the no!
I remember that dark day in the fashion world when it was announced that he had passed. I also remembering reading the twitter feed and almost every other tweet was "God Save McQueen". It was a sad day, yet I still shed a few happy tears. Tears that this one single man, who changed fashion forever, would never be forgotten. I still get emotional when I think about it. McQueen, you were iconic. You left a legacy and it's carried on brightly. When I didn't know it was possible, you made me love fashion even more. You were a true artist and even today, this rainy, slow morning, you jolt me awake when a new piece is revealed.
Long live McQueen.
