Another month and another great loss to the fashion industry. Alexander McQueen committed suicide in his London apartment this morning. I don't know what attracts so many creative people to death, but truth be told: depression is depression, yet working in such a dog eat dog industry certainly doesn't help. So instead of trying to figure out why, let's remember him by the beautifully violent, romantic vision - something he once pioneered.

All of the backstage pictures above were taken by Ann Ray, a long-time collaborator of McQueen. Her book is due to come out this year.
