London-born fashion designer Lee Alexander McQueen (1969 - 2010) was renowned for his conceptually daring and beautifully crafted ensembles. His theatrical catwalk shows are now the stuff of fashion legend, and his work remains hugely influential. In this film, McQueen’s friends, family and contemporaries reflect on the life and extraordinary career of fashion’s ultimate ‘enfant terrible’.

This video is better than the whole McQueen movie.

I remember once, while accepting an award, McQueen said "tell Marilyn Manson to get off my tit." I think he may have overestimated Marilyn Manson because at that time, the brilliant Floria Sigismondi was in charge of creating his aesthetic. This was around the time of Antichrist Superstar, before that awful attempt at glam or whatever. Anyway, if you watch the video for Tourniquet, that's Floria's work and I can tell she is very inspired by McQueen. I've heard her refered to as the female Tim Burton, but I don't think so. Her shit is just dark with no comedic edge. I love her stuff.

Nähwichtel Nähen no one said that... someone that really knows about history of fashion would never said that. Read what alaïa said about karl and anna wintour. Google it.

One might ask yourself . why did he commit suicide? Maybe he wanted to be at the top when he died.maybe he wanted to be remembered as one of the best designers of all time????

his mum had died very recently and she was his biggest supporter, he was under extreme pressure with the constant collections and he medicated with drugs, that might be more of what happened
