Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen is known for both the emotional power and raw energy of his shows as well as the romantic, contemporary nature of his collections. Integral to the McQueen culture is the juxtaposition between contrasting elements: fragility and strength, tradition and modernity, fluidity and severity. McQueen's collections combine a knowledge of bespoke British tailoring, the workmanship of the French haute couture atelier and the impeccable finish of Italian manufacturing.

Since his death in February 2010, Sarah Burton has taken the helm, continuing the legacy of McQueen’s iconic style – where dark rebelliousness meets romantic femininity – to great acclaim, while adding a softer more feminine touch to the collection's theatrical DNA.
