Born in London Lee Alexander McQueen as he was known as was the youngest of six children. Leaving college at the age of 16 he was offered an apprenticeship on Savile Row learning the technical construction of clothing and razor sharp tailoring, which became McQueen’s signature style in years to come. He studied his Masters at Central Saint Martin’s and his whole final collection was bought by soon to be friend and muse Isabella Blow.
His collections combine British tailoring with French Haute Couture all finished with Italian manufacturing. He worked as the Chief Designer at French design house Givenchy until 2001 while remaining as the Creative Director of his own label and winning many awards along the way. Now in the hands of Sarah Burton the McQueen name and style lives on. Dressing HRH Duchess of Cambridge for the Royal wedding bought global recognition to her as a designer and the overall Alexander McQueen brand.
