Women's Wear Daily is reporting that Gucci Group parent company PPR has announced that it will keep Alexander McQueen's company open, despite the designer's recent passing. The Alexander McQueen fall-winter 2010 show will go on as planned during Paris Fashion Week. "We believe in the future of the brand," said PPR president Robert Polet. "Lee was very proud of the people working in his company, and so am I." [Racked NY]
