The last Atlantis

When asked by his mom: “What is your most terrifying fear” during an interview, Alexander McQueen answered: “Dying before you.” At least, he is gone without being terrified. Fashion is only a game, and he played it so creatively that it will take a long long time for us to comprehend it.

He may be going to the past, to the field of Culloden. He may have gone to the future, to have predicted what the aliens look like.
