RIP Alexander McQueen

Fashion designer Alexander McQueen appears to have committed suicide.

One of the things he is well-known for is the "bumster" pants: super low-slung pants which bared buttcrack. However, no one seems to know exactly when they were introduced, which is odd. The BBC News Service say 1996; Grazia Daily, a fashion blog says 1994; the Fashion Page (a fashion site which has been up since 1994) claims 1995; The Guardian claims the earliest with 1992.

UPDATE (2013-01-13): Here is a definitive source (MoMA): the bumster skirt was introduced in the Highland Rape collection for autumn/winter 1995/96.
