“Fashion is a big bubble and sometimes I just feel like popping it.” ― Alexander McQueen
The youngest of six children, Lee Alexander McQueen was expected to become a plumber, a bricklayer or possibly a cab driver like his father. Instead, McQueen’s fierce romanticism and punk poetry helped create 1990s-era ‘Cool Britannia’. For perhaps the first time since the Swinging Sixties, a lad from the East End of London could — and did — become one of the most original and influential artists of the 20th Century.
McQueen is a thrilling rags-to-riches portrait of a complex artistic genius. Through exclusive interviews with McQueen’s closest friends and family and never-before-seen archives, McQueen reveals an unmatched talent who expressed his darkest fantasies and greatest ambitions through his revolutionary designs and runway shows.
“A savagely beautiful tribute that the late, irreverent fashion designer Alexander McQueen would surely have appreciated.” – San Francisco Chronicle
