The Fashion World Responds to Alexander McQueen's Death
"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. He was one of our best designers, and this is a huge loss for the world of fashion...The world has lost a star. My deepest sympathy goes out to his family, his many friends and all those who worked with him."
