RIP Alexander McQueen

The real-time obituary of today comes not from the news or recollections from a person's friends or colleagues but via a trickle of lamentations on my Facebook Wall or in my Twitter feed, a small wave that grows in size and crests about a half day later before crashing on shore, the story passing then into the hands of old school media. It's clear from that part of my life that a lot of my friends were into Alexander McQueen.

I'm no high fashion expert, but his death did recall for me this gorgeous hologram of Kate Moss shown at one of his fashion shows. I wish a higher res copy were available, but this will at least give an idea. You had to be there (for the record, I wasn't).
