The death of the famous British designer Alexander McQueen was a serious blow to both the fashion world and show business. Many celebrities, including the outrageous singer Lady Gaga, are very painfully experiencing the loss. The date of the designer's funeral is still unknown, but it is assumed that the farewell ceremony may take place later this week. Since today, the Westminster coroner's court ended hearings on the death of the fashion designer.

The cause of death of the 40-year-old fashion celebrity was suffocation (asphyxiation) as a result of hanging, according to forensic experts. No traces of violence were found. As noted in the document, Alexander McQueen hanged himself in the dressing room, having previously left a suicide note on the table, the text of which has not yet been disclosed.

McQueen has been named British Designer of the Year four times. He succeeded John Galliano as chief designer for Givenchy, worked with Gieves & Hawkes and Gucci, and later founded his own brand.

We will remind, the fashion designer, whose full name is Lee Alexander McQueen, was found dead on February 11 at about 10 am GMT at his home on Green Street in the prestigious Mayfair district in central London.

Just over a week ago, on February 2, McQueen's mother, Joyce, passed away, which could have caused the designer's depression. In addition, in 2007, McQueen's closest friend, journalist and expert in the field of fashion and style, Isabella Blow, committed suicide, who revealed his talent to the public.

As soon as it became known about the death of the fashion designer, crowds of fans of his work poured into London stores in order to buy things from the latest McQueen collection. The $ 320 designer scarf was very popular: a light dark scarf was painted with skulls of various colors.
