Alexander McQueen’s namesake label will live on despite the death of the designer, his parent company said today.
PPR SA’s chief executive Francois-Henri Pinault made the announcement today after paying homage to McQueen, who was found hanged in his wardrobe in London last week.
Mr Pinault called McQueen a genius, a poet and a friend.
The designer rose to fame in the 1990s, and was known for his daring and edgy style and skilful tailoring. He is credited with helping to revive the once-moribund British fashion industry.
