Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen's funeral today and a sad, rainy day.

The dress that McQueen created for Bjork's album Homogenic, photographed by Nick Knight.

Alexander McQueen was just truly inspired. What I loved about McQueen was the exquisite attention to detail,

the stunning show-stoppers he created (this took my breath away when I saw it sashay down the catwalk - it moved so beautifully)

the way he would combine ethnic and often tribal influences with true British style (would love to have something from this Widows of Culloden collection)

and sharp Savile Row tailoring. I loved the Hitchcock influence in 'The man who knew too much' collection.

Even his invitations were an inspiration (original images on heavy card and beautiful paper). And not least the drama and sets of the catwalk shows, which were always so striking and original - above is a still from his 'The girl who lived in a tree' catwalk show.

It would have to be the red feathers for me. Stunning. Truly a great loss of talent. So sad about him. Sometimes it's hard to have such success so young.
