Alexander McQueen is a British luxury fashion house founded by Lee Alexander McQueen in 1992. Dropping out of school to find a job in London’s Savile Row Company, to start working as a design assistant for Romeo Gigli in Italy, to simply become the head designer of Givenchy. Alexander McQueen‘s rise from lower-class high-school dropout to internationally famous designer is a remarkable story. The British designer’s cause of death was determined to be suicide in 2010, shortly after his mother died. Sarah Burton was appointed as a creative director for Alexander McQueen‘s brand and since then her intuitive understanding of the titular designer’s vision is imparted in the label’s offerings. Reflecting a unique attitude in menswear, womenswear and accessories. Her design inspiration comes from the street culture and the modern trend-setters, the label’s collections express fragility and strength, tradition and modernity, fluidity and severity.
