Alexander McQueen’s Ashes Scattered in ScotlandJun 22, 2010 @ 1:17 pm
Legendary fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s ashes were scattered at Kilmuir, an area off Scotland’s Isle of Skye known for its beautiful seascapes, on May 29. (The designer committed suicide this past February.). A statement from the McQueen family released yesterday read: “[Alexander] cherished the times that he was able to spend on the Isle of Skye—he enjoyed the beauty, peace and tranquility. It was [his] final request that his ashes be buried there.” Expect a memorial service to be held later this year, although a date has yet to be set. See our complete retrospective of the designer.
