Alexander McQueen is a luxury fashion house founded by designer Lee Alexander McQueen (born in Lewisham, London, UK on March 17, 1969 – die in Mayfair, London on February 11, 2010). Its current creative director is Sarah Burton. McQueen was also chief designer Givenchy from 1996 to 2001 and for founding his own label under the name Alexander McQueen. His achievements in fashion earned him four British Designer of the Year awards (1996, 1997, 2001 and 2003), as well as the CFDA's International Designer of the Year award in 2003.
The BRIT Awards performance of an acoustic rendition of "Telephone", was a dedication to the fashion designer, who had then-recently died by suicide. Along with this, she also debuted her newest creation, Emma, a keytar (Keyboard/Guitar).
About an hour prior to the starting time of the award ceremony, she commented on her Twitter page about her performance.
