The Beginning...But really it's the end

I was hoping to start my blog on the first day of A/W 10 shows, upbeat and looking to the forward into the future.

Unfortunately, I have to look back to see greatness. Alexander McQueen has died today, suddenly and tragically. A talent that has been celebrated with awards and titles has been lost.

Whilst it will take time to sink in, reflection on his achievements and collections will be overwhelming. The only positive in this, is that we will be flooded by his design genius, past and present, through his archives.

I can only pass my condolences to his family, friends and colleagues who had the privilege of knowing a man who truly impacted on the fashion world. His cheeky twinkle in the eye will be missed enormously.
