son of a taxi driver ..

i never knew him .. i only knew how he made me feel when i saw the things he created .. the beauty he brought to the world .. the way he dressed a woman .. the way he could twist and turn a length of fabric or in his case a bolt of fabric .. his gowns always struck me as created by someone who was instructed to use all the fabric in the bolt ..

i remember the first time i saw one of his gowns .. i honestly wasn't sure what i was seeing .. the way it twisted and turned and folded over itself .. i thought for a moment it was a trick to the eye ..

i loved the things that alexander mcqueen created .. i don't pretend to know the demons he carried .. but i am thankful he showed the world the beauty from within ..

may he rest in peace ..

Alexander McQueen - March 17, 1969 - February 11, 2010 ..
