Alexander McQueen: A Great British Designer
Let Me Introduce Mr. Alexander McQueen
Lee Alexander McQueen, (March 16, 1969 - February 11, 2010) was a British fashion designer famous for his unique and exhilarating designs and shocking creations. McQueen worked for design house Givenchy as the head designer for five years before founding his own label, Alexander McQueen and his secondary label, McQ. His dangerously delicious designs were coveted by celebs such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Madonna. He died today in his home. (Feb. 11, 2009)
I have been a fan of Mr. Alexander McQueen for quite some time now. It hurts to know that one of the most brilliant fashion minds of this world is now gone. He has been creative, unique, inventive, risque, even crazy with his designs and fashion-show ideas. His love and eye for fashion truly shows on his runways. He was no typical designer. His ideas were all original and unique. Unlike other designers, Mr. McQueen designs whatever he loves and never ever copies others' ideas. I have the utmost respect for him as a designer, and will look towards his amazing fashions for inspiration for years to come.

“When you see a woman wearing McQueen, there's a certain hardness to the clothes that makes her look powerful.... It kind of fends people off. You have to have a lot of balls to talk to a woman wearing my clothes.”
