On this day, the late Alexander McQueen would have turned 47. Although the fashion designer tragically ended his life six years ago, he's still remembered as a true visionary. While he's no longer physically with us, McQueen's incredible knack for creating beautiful and innovative clothing was so impressive and influential in the fashion world that his memory will long outlast his lifetime.

The British couturier first gained worldwide renown as head designer at Givenchy (1996 - 2001). Before that, McQueen had already founded his own namesake label. During his time as a designer, McQueen earned several accolades for his work, including four British Designer of the Year awards, as well as the CFDA's International Designer of the Year Award in 2003.
