Synopsis

Judith Watt, a leading fashion historian and close personal friend of her brilliant, tragic subject, offers a close-up backstage look at the life, legacy, and visionary genius of Alexander McQueen.  From his East London childhood to his explosive, game-changing fashion career to his shocking suicide at the age of forty, Watt’s Alexander McQueen features revealing commentary and intimate perspectives by those who were closest to the fearless, groundbreaking designer—including milliner Philip Treacy, stylist Katy England, photographer Nick Knight, as well as friends and collectors Sarah Jessica Parker, Lady Gaga, and Daphne Guiness—and stunning, photographs, many never before seen, of some of his most remarkable designs and intricate apparel.
