As the fashion world comes to terms with the suspected suicide of Alexander McQueen we look back at some of his most famous designs.

Celebrity fan Katherine Jenkins pays tribute to the late designer Alexander McQueen.

A charity catwalk show at New York Fashion Week at the weekend, became a salute to the late British designer, Lee Alexander McQueen , who died suddenly at his London home last week. The show, Fashion for Relief/Haiti, was organised by the British supermodel, Naomi Campbell, a global ambassador for the White Ribbon Alliance charity, and close friend of the designer, who said she was “devastated” by the news. “It’s just so sad. I can’t believe it. He was the best, ” she said. The list of more than 140 designers who donated clothes for the charity catwalk extravaganza was a roll-call of the biggest names in international fashion, including Versace, Gucci, Christian Dior, Burberry, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Jean Paul Gaultier, Tom Ford, Louis Vuitton, Manolo Blahnik, and Roberto Cavalli. – from Telegraph
