British fashion designer Alexander McQueen was found dead at his London home on Thursday, his spokeswoman said. He was 40 years old.
Company spokeswoman Samantha Garrett said McQueen's body was found in the morning but that she had no information "in terms of circumstances."
Police did not directly comment when asked about how McQueen died, but said officers were called by the ambulance service at 10:20 a.m. to an address on Green Street, in central London, and found a 40-year-old man dead. They did not name him but said next of kin had been informed.
The force said a post-mortem would be held but that the death was not being treated as suspicious.
McQueen's death came days before London Fashion Week, although he was not scheduled to show in the British capital.
Fashion guru Isabella Blow, who helped launch McQueen's career, committed suicide almost three years ago.
