For those who knew Alexander McQueen they knew he was exceptional. However, details of his will this morning reveal for the entire world how special this individual was. A detailed list of McQueen’s £16 million fortune and it’s dispersal was released yesterday and it goes a little something like this…
£50,000 to make sure his two dogs are cared for throughout the rest of their lives.
£50,000 to each of his housekeepers.
£250,000 to each of his five brothers and sisters.
£50,000 to each of his nieces, nephews and his godson.
£100,000 to each of his four favoured charities – the Terrence Higgins Trust, Battersea Dogs Home, London Buddist Centre and Blue Cross Animal Welfare.
The rest of his fortune was left in a trust and dedicated to funding students who wished to attend Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
Pretty amazing, right? To leave the bulk of your fortune to provide educational funds is an amazing gift.
RIP Alexander McQueen
