The brief and final design is to design a cutting edge, couture garment based on the life and work of ‘British Fashion Designer Alexander McQueen’.Alexander McQueen: The visionary
Alexander McQueen produced some the greatest shows in fashion history: McQueen has created Perspex catwalks showered with rain and others that burst into flames; and he has required models to skate around a larger-than-life-size snowstorm or stalk the world's most glamorous padded cell.
Since the early 1990s, when the Savile Row-trained designer graduated and the late Isabella Blow famously bought his entire degree collection, McQueen has been the subject of controversy, but that belies both the clarity of his vision and the beauty of his work.
