His untimely death comes as an apparent shock, as Alexander McQueen was found dead at his home in London.

According to CNN, it reports that Metropolitan Police of London said that he was found this morning in his London home at the address of Green Street in central London. It is said that his death is reportedly not suspicious.

A spokesperson for the 40-year old designer, whose full name is Lee Alexander McQueen, issued a statement on behalf of his company and family, “At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with Lee’s family.”

As news hits the fashion world, and as other celebrities offer their condolences, editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour of Vogue shared this of the widely-creative and talented soul, “one of the greatest talents of his generation … In such a short career, [his] influence was astonishing – from street style, to music culture and the world’s museums. His passing marks an insurmountable loss.”

Apparent tragedy leading up to McQueen’s death, was the loss of his own mother, Joyce, who passed away just earlier this month. Reports are swirling that he may have allegedly committed suicide, death by hanging, however, this has not yet been confirmed. There were reports that the late fashion designer did post via Twitter leading up to his death, seemingly quite depressing. You can see the stream of tweets posted below:
