God Save McQueen

In this time of sadness and confusion, the fashion world is in a state of reflection. Many toasts were given in remembrance on the eve of Lee McQueen's passing. I think that celebrating his genius is one of the best ways of honoring him. Because, even those who find fashion frivolous cannot deny that McQueen was one of the greatest artists of our time. It is unsettling to think that no one could ever fill the void he has left in the creative collective consciousness, but maybe that is part of his legacy. He was authentic, original, and unique, and I regret the fact that I will never get to meet him. Rest in peace.
