Alexander McQueen

Born in London on 17th March 1969, Lee Alexander McQueen started fashioning creations for his sisters at a young age. At 16, he learned the art of tailoring whilst working for the traditional tailors Anderson & Sheppard and Gieves & Hawkes. Subsequently, he worked for the London theatre costume design company, Angels The Costumiers, the Japanese designer Koji Tatsuno and Romeo Gigli in Milan. He completed his Master of Arts in 1992 at the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London.

Alexander McQueen Collection

His final collection “Jack the Ripper” delighted not only the fashion press, but also the British Vogue stylist Isabella Blow, who bought up McQueen’s entire collection and became her protégé. He founded his own label in 1993. Alexander McQueen’s haute couture, and especially Alexander McQueen clothes, quickly became synonymous with extravagant and unique fashion, and earned international recognition. In 1997, the British couturier became a designer for Givenchy, and later for Dior. At the beginning of the new millennium, he launched the first Alexander McQueen collection for men.

Alexander McQueen Haute Couture

It is always the unification of controversies that make his designs recognisable, and that allowed Alexander McQueen to transform from a revolutionary fashion anarchist into one of the most renowned haute couture designers in a very short time. At Alexander McQueen, innovative and avant-garde design meets high-quality processing of exquisite materials; this is repeatedly reflected in Alexander McQueen bags.
The Alexander McQueen fashion shows have been infamous since the start of his career. Extravagant, and artistically and technically sophisticated, the label likes to push boundaries and creates a unique mixture of the provocative and gentle elegance.

Interesting facts

After his tragic suicide in February 2010, McQueen’s right hand woman and designer of the women’s collection, Sarah Burton, carried on the masterful designer’s fashion legacy. She is responsible for the fact that the British label’s opulent success was not diminished after the death of the designer. She continued to develop McQueen’s aesthetic concept faithfully, whilst observing his fashion philosophy. In 2011, Burton designed Kate Middleton’s legendary wedding dress. The trend-setting Alexander McQueen dresses are highly sought-after by big names in Hollywood. Kate Bosworth, Gwyneth Paltrow and Sarah Jessica Parker love Alexander McQueen jeans.

Alexander McQueen Fashion

In 2011, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York dedicated a large retrospective to Alexander McQueen. Even before his death, the fashion designer was honoured with many prizes and accolades. He was awarded either the British or International Designer of the Year award in 1996, 1997, 2001, and 2003, was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II as a Commander of the British Empire in 2003, and received the Fashion Director’s award in 2007.
