Alexander McQueen : The Legend and the Legacy Hardback
by Judith Watt
With a retrospective of Lee's groundbreaking work and a salute to his artistry, this book showcases the wonderful world of McQueen, from his graduate collection at Central Saint Martins to his latest designs created just days before his untimely death.
Celebrating his work and vision, Alexander McQueen: Fashion Visionary traces the designer's ascent to becoming one of the world's most respected couturiers - a story marked by celebrity friendships, unrestrained creativity, theatrical fashion shows and, ultimately, tragedy.
The chronological organization allows the reader to understand McQueen's most seminal collections and the progression and underlying themes of his ideas.
This book is dedicated to McQueen's work and talent, and exhibits not simply visually electrifying fashion images, but also reveals the deep reservoir of the designer's imagination.
