Alexander McQueen Retrospective

Regarded as the bad boy, rebel and one of the most controversial designers of all time. The fashion world was in disbelief when Alexander McQueen was found dead. He died at the age of 40 and who would have thought that a son of a taxi driver and social science teacher will rise in the cut throat world of high fashion.

Revered as a master technician from his trainings and experience in Savile Row and Central Saint Martins. His entire graduation collection was bought by Isabella Blow.
From ads to runway, Mr. McQueen knows how to put a show. But he doesn't always get a good feedback, in the pass he is frequently misunderstood by the press.

One artist have said that you cannot deconstruct what you can't build, nor make a crooked line if you don't know what a straight line. This methapor best describes the works of Alexander McQueen. He rebelled from his technical expertise and gave us the beautiful and the unexpected. He marveled our imagination and pushed the boundaries of the fashion industry.
