Alexander McQueen Book | Savage Beauty
“I never conformed to any sort of fashion ideal. My idea was to always show reality, even though I started at Savile row and ended up at Givenchy in Paris; to depict the times I live in” – Alexander McQueen, Harpers Bazaar, September 2008
Alexander McQueen (1969-2010) was one of the most influential, imaginative and provocative designers of his generation. His Clothing both challenged and expanded the conventional parameters of fashion to express ideas about culture, politics and identity. Rare among designers, McQueen saw beyond clothing’s physical constraints to its ideological and conceptual possibilities, addressing questions relating to race, class, gender, religion, sexuality and the environment.
