Following up with the tragic loss which hit the fashion industry last week, a British coroner has released post-mortem results of Alexander McQueen's death. The irreverent British designer was found dead last Thursday in his apartment, on the morning of his McQ presentation due to show at New York Fashion Week. The reports of the post-mortem confirmed "asphyxia" and "hanging" as the cause of death, and has also revealed that the police found McQueen "hanging in his wardrobe", and "are treating his death as non-suspicious". While a full inquest into McQueen's death will be heard on April 28, there is no doubt that the world is still mourning for this loss-- and the growing monumental piles of tribute pouring in at McQueen stores is an elegiac attestation to this. via: WWD
