Iconic British fashion designer Alexander McQueen died 11 February 2010. His incredible creativity and vision made him a favorite in rock ‘n’ roll and pop music from the inception of his career. His collaboration with Björk produced the cover of her 1997 album Homogenic, and he also directed the video for the song “Alarm Call”. It’s bizarre and off-kilter and wonderful and visually stunning, like everything that Alexander McQueen created. His loss will be felt far beyond the realms of the fashion industry.
