February 11th this year, the fashion world lost an icon, Alexander McQueen.
Parker was in tears as she gave her final farewell.
Wintour was the first to take the podium, "He taught us that the runway was a place where dreams become reality. There was no comfort zone with Alexander McQueen. There was no containing of his contradictions. Even his final collection was a literal fight between dark and light. His was an 18-year career of harnessing his dreams and demons," she said.
"He showed us everything was possible; dreams could become reality. But he has left us with an even more exceptional legacy, a talent that soared like the birds of his childhood above us all."
Inside the cathedral, Icelandic performer Bjork, dressed in white and wearing angel wings, sang 'Gloomy Sunday,' a composition associated with suicide.
He was remembered in March on what would have been his 41st birthday by a number of prominent New York-based designers, including Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, Zac Posen and Calvin Klein's Francisco Costa.
The Alexander McQueen label lives on under the creative direction of Sarah Burton.
