On the first day of last season's New York fashion week, Lee Alexander McQueen was found hanged in his home. A private memorial service in his honor will be held September 20th at St. Paul's Cathedral in London during London Fashion Week. While no official list of speakers or attendees has yet been revealed, Fashionologie speculates that Anna Wintour and Shaun Leane, the jeweler who collaborated with McQueen for many years, will be speaking.
