Despite McQueen’s tragic passing last Thursday, reps from his label announce that the fashion house will continue to operate. They claim that they believe in the future of the brand, and feel they have a strong team in place to carry on the label with integrity. The Gucci Group, who purchased a 51% stake in the company back in 2000, will continue to hold its stake in the brand. Only time will tell if the label will continue to garner success without its directional genius at the helm.
Long live McQueen.
