Fashion elite join Alexander McQueen's family for funeral

Fashion industry figures including designer Stella McCartney and models Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell have joined Lee Alexander McQueen’s family at his funeral today.

The funeral is being held this afternoon at St Paul’s Church, Knightsbridge, where McQueen’s father Ronald and his five other children congregated earlier today.

McQueen was found dead in his London flat on February 11.

Today’s funeral is for family and close friends only but several fans sent bouquets of flowers to the church this morning to show their respect.

It is understood that another memorial service will take place later this year to give McQueen’s friends and supporters a chance to pay their respects but no date or venue for has yet been confirmed.

McQueen was also remembered at London Fashion Week, which closed yesterday, with a tribute wall on which fans and friends could leave messages of condolence.
