Alexander McQueen's death casts a pall over London Fashion Week
McQueen looms large
The opening of London Fashion Week on Friday was darkened by the giant shadow cast by the death of Alexander McQueen, long the enigmatic toast of the London fashion world.
McQueen, who died in an apparent suicide last week, was honored with a remembrance wall that quickly became the center of attention in the mammoth fashion tent pitched in the courtyard of Somerset House.
Hundreds of messages were posted to the late superstar, regarded as the provocative enfant terrible of the once staid London design scene. After fashion week is over, the notes will be collected in a book and given to McQueen's family. Focus will then likely shift to Paris, where his final collection -- finished by his assistants -- is expected to be shown early next month.
