This from a lengthy obituary/appreciation of fashion designer, Alexander McQueen in the Guardian (UK) newspaper:

The McQueen I remember – I'd met him professionally, then got to know him socially – had no rain cloud over his head. And the Aleister Crowley stuff, this idea of McQueen as occult-dabbler – according to one writer, someone who "could never stop himself from obsessing over the dark side of beauty" – is just the kind of half-baked fashion world philosophising that the man himself, as he told me more than once, couldn't stomach.

Also in yesterdays Grauniad was a pamphlet on "Better Relationships"
Perhaps it should be scanned and published here? 😈
