Alexander McQueen's will to be revealed

A bulk of the late Alexander McQueen’s £16m fortune has been left to charity and may be used to support students studying at London’s Central Saint Martins, where the late designer was a former student.

McQueen, who committed suicide in February 2010, has left a majority of his estate in a trust for his Sarabande charity. The full details are due to be published today (July 27).

He has also left £100,000 to both The Terrence Higgins Trust and the London Buddhist Centre; £50,000 to his housekeepers, Marlene and Cesar Garcia; £50,000 to this godson and each of his nephews; and £250,000 to each of his three sisters and two brothers.

McQueen has also left £100,000 to animal charities The Blue Cross and Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, and £50,000 in a trust for the care of his own pet dogs.
