Famed Sex And The City stylist and clothes designer Patricia Field has told RadarOnline.com that she was ‘totally shocked’ to hear about the tragic death of British designer Alexander McQueen.
McQueen – whose designs regularly appeared on the hit television show and subsequent movie – was known to be a favorite designer for Sarah Jessica Parker.
Speaking from her New York home Field told RadarOnline.com, “Needless to say I was totally shocked when I heard the news and my stomach just dropped.
“Both Alexander’s energy and the fantasy of his designs were such a pleasure and at least we will have the memory of those.
“I greatly admired his work and his clothes regularly appeared in Sex And The City over the years.
“All I can say is that as from one artist to another he truly spoke the language of art through his designs.
“Cream always floats to the top and that was Alexander McQueen’s designs, it’s just very sad.”
McQueen, 40, reportedly hung himself at his Mayfair, London, apartment after becoming deeply depressed following the recent death of his mother Joyce.
Three years ago almost to the day McQueen also lost his close friend Isabella Blow, who was credited with discovering the fashion talent and helped make him a star, she also killed herself.
McQueen had been working hard in the run up to his death, he was working on his new collection that he was due to unveil at Paris Fashion Week on March 9.
The designer was a favorite of the stars, designing for Lady Gaga, Rihanna and even Prince Charles, amongst others.
A rep from McQueen’s office released a statement saying, “At this stage it is inappropriate to comment on this tragic news beyond saying that we are devastated and are sharing a sense of shock and grief with [McQueen’s] family.”
