McQueen dropped out of school at age 16 to pursue a career in fashion design. "The label is known for its dramatic, gorgeously constructed pieces, combining elements of British tailoring with French couture." -NYMAG.COM
You cannot look at this man's work and not be amazed. When I heard the news that Alexander McQueen had taken his own life a couple of days ago, it literally hurt. His designs were so fresh, creative, out of this world, and absolutely amazing. This is a huge loss, and I really wonder if we'll ever have another designer like him in our lifetime.
"I'm interested in designing for posterity. People who buy McQueen are going to hand the clothes down to their children, and that's very rare today." -Alexander McQueen
"When you see a woman wearing McQueen, there's a certain hardness to the clothes that make her look powerful....It kind of fends people off. You have to have a lot of balls to talk to a woman wearing my clothes." -Alexander McQueen
