ALEXANDER MCQUEEN MADE MODELS DO WHAT!?! (Top 10 McQueen Shows to Know Part 1)

22206 ratings | 685133 views
Alexander McQueen was one of fashion's modern revolutionaries. His work was sublime, and his presentation of clothing changed the way the industry looked at fashion shows as a whole. Much of the background research stems from "Gods and Kings" by Dana Thomas. While the book is a gossipy tell-all, it's investigations into McQueen's references are insightful and almost always accurate. The documentary "McQueen" will open in theaters on July 20th, 2018!

It has to scream “no one will ever wear this” for it to be considered fashion. 😑

Could do without the censorship... this is art, not porn, and it should be treated as such.

So many people whine about his shocking concepts but that's what Mcqueen actually wanted. Anyway the likes of this video proves that people actually enjoyed Mcqueen's content after all and only few got offended.

He is one of my most favourite designers and I love this video so much. Thank you for opening the McQueen box to a wider audience that may not have known all of the intricacies behind his designs.

I love Alexander McQueen but the fact that the black model wasn't aware of the concept behind the cage shocked me so much I would have been so annoyed if I had been in her place. Especially black people need to know what they represent in art otherwise we gonna be in the same loop. Black culture has so many beautiful things but the white men have the need to attribute the negative part of the black culture. It's time to change mentality guys. People may not be happy with this comment but I'm talking through my experiences.

I think fashion designers are really arrogant and you calling them genius’s only blows up their bighead even more. For the highland rape show, you called him brilliant for using a metaphor. A metaphor. You were implying you liked his symbolism. We are doing symbolism in year 8! McQueen has not one ounce of subtlety. The storyline is easy to understand and i could easily get a child to understand it (not that i would show highland rape to a child). They all make their models walk weird and think they are “creative” when anybody could think of that. The only reason nobody does is because they dont want to get in trouble or it wouldnt fit their aesthetic. And as for creating a silhouette, I think that it was honestly a random idea. Lots of people have probably, no, defientlyt have thought of low rise jeans. I think we can credit him for making it big but when you think about it, he is getting credit for something many have probably thought of. And low rise jeans were hardly the classiest thing you could invent. I would be embarrassed. And on a humorous note, I think the only reason he got the models to touch themselves on stage was to be able to “get off” to it later and built the rest of that england, Scotland shit around it.

Why do they all look like starving heroin addicts dying of aids? And why are modern models, unfeminine mandyke, land whales? I thought models were supposed to be picked for their beauty. Why do they all look so fucking awful?

Art is ART. I haven’t understood how that one show was even “controversial” since it happened three decades ago. He made an incredibly important statement, and those who understood it loved it. High fashion is not about appealing to the masses. You can not compare McQueen’s clothes to stuff you would find at Target. Nor can you compare the content of his fashion shows to regularly dressed people. It’s not even supposed to be sensible or comfortable. Again. Art.

People have been brainwashed by McQueen's brilliant showmanship and artistic approach to showing his collections into believing he was a genius as a designer. He was undoubtedly talented, but was he a genius? I can't say that anything he did was original, unique or influential enough to earn him the title of genius. Look at the collections of Westwood, Mugler, Gaultier and Galliano and you will see they did similar looks to those shown by McQueen, before he did them.

The disturbing images and the real life horror of the designer's life hurts my heart, and yet there's a haunting beauty in his designs. Thanks for this look into his collections and peek into his thought process.

You should change that queenish tone before narrating your video( I am gay). All in the video was from AMcQ beggining and he deserve a big APPLAUSE. Just sad that he is no more here. Learn fashion before critisizing. Hope you can do better for a living.

A low rise pant is not a silhouette. A silhouette is exactly that the shape of garment. You can take a highrise pant have the rise cut down to an extreme low rise and it's still the same silhouette.

gosh I hate fashion. This won't ever change, I was trying to open my mind here and lurn , but I have to come to the conclusion that I hate everything about it, it's a freaking death cult.I think it's for my best interest.
Ichronic _ (29 days ago)
Backintime Alwyn So long as industry exists, there's people who will do anything to be on top. I wouldn't call all of fashion a death cult. It's too board. It would be like calling all film a death cult, when really what you mean by film is Hollywood. Fashion has its Hollywood and it is dark.
Backintime Alwyn (1 month ago)
+Ichronic _ yes I think I agree with Tom Ford, but don't you think that people like him might be the reason why it sucks that much? Why not making it better? But I guess some people need their death cult.
Ichronic _ (1 month ago)
Backintime Alwyn in the words of Tom Ford; "If you can imagine yourself doing anything else, get out, go do that instead. Fashion has a brutal industry and you have to love it with all your heart to endure it." - he began as a fashion designer and then became a film director too. Like him, I love fashion, but I do agree that the industry is brutal and hurts more than it gives to young designers. The high suicide rate in the industry is no coincidence. If you can see yourself as anything else, do that.

damn man thank you , finally found an informative and in-depth perspective regarding classic designers on their collections. not even 5 minutes in and you completely WOWed me at the Jack the ripper collection, the informative story and details surrounding it is so hard to really find information about or even people that pay attention to collections that have a bigger story behind “oh, its just clothing”. like no bitch it isn’t ahaha
Andy Goes to Hell (2 months ago)
I love Alexander McQueen so much, his art is not only something controversial and different but it is also a signal, a warning that history is very important and therefore should not be forgotten in effort to not repeat the same mistakes ever again. His choice of models definitely represents how much were women abused and subjugated by the society and its beauty standards and these provocative clothes and the way the models freely walk carelessly is like an act of revenge. It's like saying "these women have been abused and raped, their clothes were torn apart so I'm giving them already torn clothes and the ability to walk freely in them to remind ignorant people that women have and are suffering at the hands of this society and they have rights to freedom and expression." I don't think that all his clothes are meant for the consumers, some of his clothes are monuments to historical events and societal problems and are meant to be seen as an act against those things, kinda like a theatrical play that spreads awareness about rape and abuse and wars etc. He's definitely one of the most interesting minds in the fashion industry!

I don't know how the touching of themselves on the runway helps with the theme of a countries rape. I would have though the self pleasure might give a different idea and might just be done to shock.

This is a geniun question, why do creators/fashion « enthusiasts » just like yourself use french in a wrong way, like you can’t say « le poupée » that’s wrong, it’s « la poupée » as in french poupée is a feminin word, same with your name « hautelemode » it makes no sense it’s LA mode and LA haute couture, same for Tyler the Creator’s brand Golf LE Fleur, it’s LA fleur It pisses me of bcause idk if they do it on purpose or just want to imitate a french brand/name but they dont even bother to see if the translate it correctly
