British fashion designer Alexander McQueen has been found dead after taking his own life. The 40-year-old icon committed suicide just days after the death of his mother, Joyce, a source at McQueen’s office confirmed to UK’s Daily Mail. “It is a tragic loss.
We are not making a comment at this time out of respect for the McQueen family.” McQueen was found at his luxury flat in Green Park, central London. It is believed he hanged himself. The notable designer had a large list of celebrity clients including Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jessica Alba, Beyonce and Naomi Campbell.
According to People,
“Alexander McQueen today announces the tragic news that Lee McQueen, the founder and designer of the Alexander McQueen brand, has been found dead at his home,” his family says in a statement to PEOPLE. “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.”
“Lee’s family has asked for privacy in order to come to terms with this terrible news and we hope the media will respect this,” the statement continues.
According to the Scotland Yard report, “Police were called by London Ambulance Service at approximately 10:20 a.m. [Wednesday] regarding a man found dead …The deceased is believed to be 40 years old and from London. Next of kin have been informed but formal identification is awaited. A postmostem examination will be arranged in due course. The death is being treated as non-suspicious at this time.”
