ALEXANDER MCQUEEN

A man that revolutionised avant-garde fashion, McQueen is one of the most innovative fashion designers the world has ever seen. Despite his untimely death, he continues to influence the industry.

In short he created magic. Born Lee Alexander McQueen to Ronald and Joyce in East London, on 17th March 1969, he always maintained that the fashion world seemed ‘other’ to him.
