Alexander Mcqueen - Alexander Mcqueen's Will Revealed

Alexander McQueen has left most of his £16 million fortune to his Sarabande charity.

The tragic fashion designer - who committed suicide in February 2010 - bequeathed the money to the organisation which shares a name with his spring/summer 2007 collection requesting the funds are used to provide bursaries and grants for students at Central St Martin's College of Art and Design in London, where he studied fashion.

Other beneficiaries named in his will include his three sisters and two brothers, who each received £250,000, while his godson and all of his nieces and nephews were provided with £50,000 each.

His housekeepers, Marlene and Cesar Garcia, were left £50,000 for "long and faithful service". It was Mr Garcia who discovered the designer's body hanging in a wardrobe of his London home last year.

Meanwhile, Alexander's beloved pet dogs were provided with to ensure they are looked after for the rest of their lives.

Charities the Terrence Higgins Trust, Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, the London Buddhist Centre and the Blue Cross sick animal centre in Burford, Oxfordshire, all received donations of £100,000 each.
