About this item

This tribute to Alexander McQueen (1969-2010) celebrates the genius of an iconic, imaginative and inspirational fashion designer with a catalog of more than 125 catwalk photographs of his work with commentary from an experienced fashion journalist and tributes and quotes from prominent people in the fashion world. It includes photographs from his last collection, presented at Paris Fashion Week in 2010, and hailed by international media and fashion reviewers. The Guardian called it "truly spectacular... a triumph"; the L.A. Times praised it as "masterpieces... runway showstoppers"; The Telegraph raved "The designs were vivid, dramatic and evocative... an emphatic demonstration of the intense skill and artistry of McQueen" and the New York Times reviewed as "His vision of Gothic glory, with a world bathed in religious symbolism, was translated not just with immense subtlety and beauty but also with the urgent futurism that was the essence of his spirit".
McQueen's dramatic designs were artistically successful and internationally recognized. He earned the British Designer of the Year award four times and his work was particularly favored by his celebrity clients including Sarah Jessica Parker, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Bjork, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

1.0 stars by Mariangela88008

This delivery was left at my front door, outside, in the rain. The shipping material was a thin paper/cardboard and the rain soaked through the shipping container and onto and into the book. I returned it because all the pages were wavy from water damage.
