Legacies

McQueen Label to Live On

Alexander McQueen's name won't die, despite his suicide last week. PPR, a French group that owns a controlling stake in McQueen's companies, announced on Thursday that the McQueen label will continue on without him. The PPR president called it "the best tribute we could offer to him," and said the company planned to build on the McQueen brand. McQueen reportedly told the head of PPR's Gucci subsidiary that his brand "will be my legacy" and "something I will always leave behind." No word yet on who will lead the company. The autumn-winter collection McQueen was working on at his death will also show at Paris fashion week in March.
