Long Live McQueen

February 11, 2010

I missed the opportunity last year to write about the sadness and shock I felt when Michael Jackson passed; a childhood hero, a person who shaped pop culture forever. As more and more time passed, it started to feel like there was no real way for me to talk about that influence from the King of Pop.

Life is fragile and each one is precious. It’s hard to explain to someone how a person you’ve never met or knew could impact you in such a huge way. Lee Alexander McQueen is one such person. An enormous inspiration in my fashion aesthetic, his genius could be felt and appreciated by many. Someone who used their creativity to the maximum, always pushing the boundaries, bringing something new to the table. This kind of innovative freedom is what I strive for and want to nurture and appreciate in others.

      @elise: thanks!! i visited your blog and i must say i like it also.

      @purpledab: i also visited your blog and i can’t speak for anyone else but i don’t think of mcqueen as some type of godlike figure and my world has not collapsed because of his death. with that being said, i am simply acknowledging what i felt his effect on fashion has been to me. i gather inspiration from all corners but i recognize that we are all human.
