Requiem to a fallen legend

Alexander McQueen's ashes were scattered in Scotland at the end of last month, it has been revealed.

The designer - who committed suicide in February - had has wishes fulfilled by his family, after they made the region of Kilmuir on the Isle of Skye his final resting place.

Although McQueen was born in London, he regarded the Scottish island as his ancestral home and told his family he wanted it to be his final resting place.

His brother said: "Alexander was back and forward all over the world but he felt at home when he was in Scotland."

McQueen often paid homage to his Scottish roots with one of his most famous collections, Highland Rape, being inspired by the Highland clearances and when he collected his CBE in 2003 he wore his full Highland dress.
