Genius of a Generation

Controversial. Inspiring. Alexander McQueen. The spectacular designer the amazing showman. His runway shows were revolutionary and shocking, capturing the attention and the love of the fashion world. His designs showed his personality and his fantasies. Themes included witchcraft , rape and capital punishment were released. They were dark, eclectic and always stunning. They told a story. So much more than fashion they were a means of self expression and exploration. The clothing always had amazing attention to detail and were impeccably made. He was the first designer to stream his show online so the general public could view the show this was then done by labels such as Gucci and Chanel. The shows included fire, water, life size chess and machines that spray painted a dress on a live model. That's what you call a show.

Celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Sara Jessica Parker were best friends and huge fans if the designer. One if McQueens biggest inspirations were birds because if how free they were. Able to fly away from everything and always looking beautiful.

Alexander McQueen is one of my biggest inspirations. The way he changed the way we look at fashion today, how he changed pattern cutting and the way he used prints. I hope that I can follow in this designers footsteps and become as great as he was. Can I be the next McQueen ?

P.s. I would like to say a big thank you to Gareth who gave me Alexander McQueen Genius Of A Generation book for Christmas. X
