The late fashion designer Alexander McQueen's will was recently released, and he left his money to various charities, his household staff, family and dogs, according to USA Today.

The fortune equals to about 16 million pounds, which translates to $26 million. About 50,000 pounds went to the care of his pets, 250,000 pounds went to each of his five brothers and sisters and another 50,000 pounds went to his two housekeepers, according to the news source.

However, it wasn't just his close family he left money to, he also left 100,000 pounds to four different charities, including two that deal with sick animals, the media outlet reports.

McQueen, who has designed celebrities and many others in his exquisite clothing, ended his own life in London last year.

McQueen was a well known and respected designer, and those who are interested in becoming fashion designers themselves may want to know how much they could earn when they graduate from their design programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, professionals in this field earned around $61,000, which was the annual median salary in 2008.
