While the fashion world will continue to mourn the gaping hole of raw talent left by Alexander McQueen‘s death, the British designer’s family has taken another step toward closure. WWD reports today that the ashes of the visionary couturier were buried at Kilmuir, a picturesque locale on Scotland’s Isle of Skye on May 29. In a statement to WWD, his family noted that it was McQueen’s final request to be buried at Kilmuir, and said, referring to the designer by his full name, Lee Alexander McQueen, “Lee cherished the times that he was able to spend on the Isle of Skye — he enjoyed the beauty, peace and tranquility.”

I’m glad The Late Alexander McQueen was able to be buried where he wanted to be buried!

I know many people can agree, the mention of his name sparks excitement and heartbreak, and always will. The news of him being put to rest where he wanted lightens the heart but doesn’t bring closure.
