Fashionistas Mourn McQueen With Tributes, Retail Sales

Alexander McQueen Tributes

Grieving fashionistas left flowers, IZZE sparkling juice, The Holy Zohar, handwritten messages, and other memorial items in front of Alexander McQueen’s NYC store in the Meat Packing District, turning the retail space into a makeshift shrine.

The well-loved British designer committed suicide last week and was found hanged in his London home, just a few days after his mom died. He was 40-years-old. In addition to leaving tributes, fans also grabbed up lots of clothes and accessories by the fashion icon, spurring an eerie spike in sales.
