Remembering Alexander “Lee” McQueen

As a kid growing up on Fashion Television every Sunday night (thanks Jeanne Becker) one of the stand-out designers I marveled at was Alexander McQueen. He shocked & terrified. He thrilled. He brought something new. Today, however, marks the fifth year anniversary of his passing, having killed himself soon after his mom’s death and a few years after his muse and best friend Isabella Blow had also killed herself.

alexander“Lee” to those who were closest to him, created some of the most memorable runway shows. One of his most beloved was “The Horn Of Plenty”. While the best book of his work is “Savage Beauty”, a visual catalogue highlighting a retrospective show in New York City. Order it from Indigo.
