Like everyone else involved in the fashion world, I am shocked and saddened by the tragic news of Alexander McQueen's death, and am still trying to take it in. He was always one of my favourite designers, and the only reason I didn't post about him more was because I'm dependent on what people are wearing on the street. On the randomness of chance.
And yet: I saw this girl on Tuesday, just as the light was going, and asked only who made her coat. Alexander McQueen, she said. There was something quite profound, and sad somehow, about the moment. The irony is, I had planned to post this shot today. All I know is her name is Tokki, but not how to reach her.
Something made me look up, and see such a heartbreaking beautiful sky. I took this shot, and, in the darkening twilight, made my way home.
Rest in Peace, Alexander. The world has lost an incredible visionary, way too soon.
