Alexander McQueen British fashion designer, found dead in apparent suicide: report

Alexander McQueen, the iconic British fashion designer, was found dead Thursday inside his London home after reportedly killing himself.

The 40-year-old McQueen, the son of a taxi driver who wound up making suits for Prince Charles, committed suicide, according to the London Daily Mail.

His company spokeswoman, Samantha Garrett, confirmed the death but declined to provide any details.

"We don't have any information in terms of circumstances," she said.

His death came just prior to the start of London Fashion Week and only weeks before he was due to unveil a new collection on March 9 in Paris.

McQueen was one of the fashion world's biggest design stars, traveling in the same circles as top models Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss.
