REMEMBERING MCQUEEN: London’s fashion community is honoring Lee Alexander McQueen with all manner of tributes. The British Fashion Council has set up a board in the main London Fashion Week tents on which visitors have pinned seemingly hundreds of notes to the late designer. Meanwhile, at the On/Off location in nearby Bloomsbury, which houses some off-schedule shows, a wall of 40 iPods has been set up, all loaded with images of McQueen’s past collections. And two London department stores are marking the designer’s memory: Harvey Nichols has designed a window that spotlights a three-dimensional mood board strewn with exotic red feathers, images of key McQueen looks, black skulls, antlers and giant black buttons, while Liberty’s tribute window to the designer, called “For McQueen and Country,” features a mannequin dressed in a purple McQueen gown set against a painted Union Jack.
