Following Lee Alexander McQueen’s tragic death last week, Gucci Group, which has the majority stake in his company, announced that the fashion label will continue. “We believe in the future of the brand. Lee was very proud of the people working in the company, and so am I,” Gucci Group president and CEO Robert Polet told WWD. Polet declined to comment on who shall succeed as the label’s head designer, but a presentation of McQueen’s Fall 2010 collection will be shown on March 9 during Paris Fashion Week.
