Alexander McQueen was one of the most famous and respected international fashion designers in the world. As part of our Deckchair Dreams project, he generously donated a design in 2006 to help support our work.
Rising fast through the fashion ranks since the age of 16, Alexander McQueen became one of the most famous and respected international fashion designers in the world. He was named British Designer of the Year four times in 1996, 1997, 2001 and 2003 and was honoured with a CBE by Her Majesty the Queen in June 2003.
Alexander McQueen’s collections are known for both the emotional power and raw energy of his shows as well as the romantic but determinedly contemporary nature of his clothes. It was typical of McQueen to use the juxtaposition between contrasting elements; fragility and strength, tradition and modernity and fluidity and severity.
Alexander McQueen’s collections combined an in-depth working knowledge of bespoke British tailoring, the fine workmanship of the French Haute Couture atelier and the impeccable finish of Italian manufacturing.
