Description

An intimate and revealing look at the personal and professional life of the fashion world's most visionary designer.

This incredible volume strips away the layers of legend surrounding Alexander McQueen, revealing the sartorial genius and the true history of the man who reinvented modern fashion. Uncovering new details about Lee Alexander McQueen's humble childhood in East London, author Judith Watt traces the young designer's ascent--from his graduate collection at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design to his over-the-top runway shows to the designs he created just days before his death at age forty. Providing new insights into the dark passion and inspiration that guided each fever-pitched runway show, this fully illustrated portrait delivers a truly comprehensive, in-depth look at the most provocative designer of a generation. Illustrated throughout with McQueen's personal drawings and ephemera as well as a mixture of exquisite catwalk and editorial fashion images, Alexander McQueen: The Life and the Legacy is every bit as stunning as the designer himself.

Review quote

An in-depth, critical examination of McQueen as both a genius mind and wildly talented designer. In short, reading Watt s book feels equivalent to taking a semester-long lecture class--An incredibly interesting and inspiring course taught by the very best of teacher s in the field. --Nylon Magazine"
