History & Philosophy
Read the story

Alexander McQueen defined as hooligan of fashion, and his luxuriously gothic style.

Son of a taxi driver, McQueen left school at the age of 16 to enter immediately into the work world. After working for Savile Row, for Gieves & Hawkes and the famous theatrical costumers Angels and Bermans, at the age of 20 he moved to Milan to work for Romeo Gigli. In 1992 he returned to London to complete his training at the prestigious Saint Martin's School of Art.

In 1996 McQueen was hired as creative director of Givenchy in place of John Galliano, where he remained until 2001, when he abandoned the maison for his creativity.

So, Alexander McQueen gets his name in the high fashion scene with transgressive and shocking fashion shows, and he started to be defined as hooligan of fashion.

Very famous are the fashion shows, like the one in which a woman without legs parading on wooden prostheses, finely carved and the one in which robots for painting cars color white clothes. In 2010, he was found hanged in his London home. He was 40 years old. Today is Sarah Burton, who continues the McQueen's creative work as director of the maison.

The brand is recognized for some distinctive traits: a mix of British tailoring by Savile Row, acquired by McQueen during his training, a typical craftsmanship of French haut couture and the impeccable finish of Italian tailoring.

The result is a luxury Gothic-style, overflowing with 'drama', romance and a constant juxtaposition of strength and fragility, tradition and future.

McQueen's skull becomes a real logo, which adorns the heads, buttons, pins and is printed on scarves and pashminas.
