A retrospective of Alexander McQueen’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, and finally his ideas carried on through Sarah
Burton, including Kate Middleton’s wedding dress.
Celebrating his work and vision, Alexander McQueen: The Legend and the Legacy 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 organisation 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.
