Alexander McQueen: Paris Fashion Week Ready-to-Wear A/W 09

Today marks what would have been Alexander McQueen's 41st birthday. In memory and celebration of his life, some of his friends and fellow designers have been leaving their tributes...

Francisco Costa - Creative Director, Calvin Klein Women's Collection: "Lee always managed to make the unobtainable a reality. He set the bar high and his genius will continue to live with us."

Zac Posen: "The first I met McQueen was when I was an intern at the Met. He was there to research and he smelled me. I was standing over vertical files, and he smelled my jacket. I must have been 17-years-old. He asked if the jacket was from London. It was. I probably skipped a Science class to be there."
