... a city chick and country girl with one foot by the ocean and the other firmly placed on the ground (or deep in the soil to be precise!). I live in central Stockholm, work in an office all day and dream of more time to be creative and more time to spend in the open air. I like to sew. I also like to yoga, eat yummy food and spend time in nature. And about everything else, come to think of it!
This morning I was chocked to read very sad news in the paper; Alexander McQueen, the master of construction and one of the most ever loved enfant terribles is dead. He took his own life in London yesterday. Apparently he had been depressed and suffered several personal losses recently, one among them that his mother died last week.
The fashion world will sure be a more dull place without him. His last collection (though apparently he had finished another collection to be shown this spring), the Spring 2010 Ready to Wear was a parade of fairytale/space-princesses. It makes my heart bubble to just look at them. Never would he have made a boring collection.
For those of you who want to make your own Alexander MacQueen-creation, there's a free downloadable pattern at Showstudio.com, check it out!
Rest in peace, Lee Alexander McQueen, you will be missed by many, many of us around the world!
