Memorial for Alexander McQueen

Emotional tributes were paid today to British fashion designer Alexander McQueen in a memorial service at St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

The designer, known to many as Lee, was remembered in a service which was attended by his close family and friends, as well as some of the fashion industry’s best known faces. According to Vogue.com, addresses were given by Anna Wintour, Shaun Leane, Suzy Menkes and Annabelle Nielson.

CEO of Alexander McQueen - Jonathan Akeroyd - and Philip Treacy contributed to the prayers, whilst Bjork gave a performance of Gloomy Sunday, dressed as an angel. Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, both known to be very close to McQueen, also attended the service.

It was announced in May that McQueen’s right-hand aide, Sarah Burton, would take over the role of Creative Director of the fashion house, ensuring that McQueen’s legacy is in safe hands.
