    When a designer dies...

    ...do they keep making the clothes or do they stop?
    because the designer makes up the clothes and ideas for it.
    so when they die, do other people become the designer?
    does that make sense?

    it depends on the house.

    usually designers will retire once they get old, with the exception of karl lagerfeld because A) he doesn't age anymore and B) he'll work until he dies. then, a designer will take over the line. if they crash and burn, the line may die out. if not, the line continues.

    for example, it was suspected that after alexander mcqueen committed suicide, the lines would die with him.
    however, a creative team is going to take over the line, which i think is beyond stupid because you can't recreate that magic.

    chanel almost died out after coco died until lagerfeld took the reigns.

    it's very conditional.

    oh, i see.
    i don't think it's a good idea because the stuff you put out might not have been what the designer wanted...
    but thanks (:

    they give up creative rights, though

    you do see that issue from time to time. i believe jil sander got very pissy.

    British fashion designer Alexander McQueen was discovered dead today after taking his own life.
    The
    industry was left reeling after the 40-year-old's suicide this morning,
    which comes just days after the death of his beloved mother, Joyce.
    It
    is also just three years since his close friend, style guru Isabella
    Blow - who plucked him from obscurity and helped him become a star -
    killed herself.McQueen, who was christened Lee but used his
    middle name as a designer, was found at his luxury flat in Mayfair,
    central London. It is
    believed he hanged himself.One of his lines, McQ, was due to be shown at New York Fashion Week this afternoon but the show has now been cancelled.
