Alexander McQueen’s Funeral to Take Place Today


A funeral service for family only will occur today for Alexander McQueen, the acclaimed designer who hanged himself in his London apartment earlier this month. A spokeswoman for the label didn't provide details on today's private service, but said a memorial service open to the designer's friends and supporters will occur this year. "We are focusing right now on the Paris show, which takes place on March 9," she added. That promises to be quite an event.
