Today the fashion industry lost such an amazing talent. McQueen was always one of our favorite designers, one of our greatest inspirations, and the show that we looked forward to the most each season. Our hearts broke a bit today with the news that McQueen died today, at the young age of 40. As fashion month begins, we are sure we will be hearing an outpouring of kind, adoring words from his friends, colleagues and fans.
Style.com has done a great compilation of quotes about McQueen so far. Click here to see kind words about McQueen from Cathy Horyn, Stella McCartney and more.

McQueen paved the way for many young designers and truly brought a unique, creative aspect to design. For that we will always be grateful.
