BRITISH fashion designer Alexander McQueen, who committed suicide in 2010, left £50,000 ($74,805) of his £16 million ($24 million) fortune to his beloved pet dogs, according to details of his will released today.
McQueen, the former enfant terrible of the fashion world who went on to find huge success with his provocative designs, left the money to insure his dogs were pampered after he was gone.
Family members, his housekeepers and his favourite charities also received large sums in the will.
The will, released after a request from Britain's Press Association news agency, said £50,000 was being left "for the upkeep and maintenance of my dog or dogs so long as my dog or dogs shall live".
He left behind three dogs named Minter, Juice and Callum, the Daily Telegraph newspaper reported.
