Designer Alexander McQueen was born in London in 1969. He quit school at the age of 16 and started working as an apprentice for Savile Row tailors and later for the designers of theatrical costumes Angels and Bermans. Later he worked for different fashion houses in Milan and Rome. In 1994, he earned a master's degree in fashion design from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. His degree collection was purchased entirely by Isabella Blow, one of the most influential stylists in the fashion world.
The fashion label which bears the name of the designer gained immense popularity in the 1990's. Alexander McQueen created masterfully made works for women that combined the finest British traditions in tailoring and the trends set by the French couture. The signature looks of the label include modern and elegant dresses with hourglass silhouette, tightly fitting cigarette pants with edgy designs and elegant frock coats for women highlighting the waistline, and glamorous evening gowns in dark colours with lace and gorgeous embroidery. The designer became known for brining drama and extravagance to the catwalk.
The works of the designer were admired by fashion experts, who found him to be a great innovator and trend setter, and style icons. Some of his most dedicated celebrity fans include Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Moss and Cate Blanchett. From 1996 to 2003, Alexander McQueen won four awards for British Designer of the Year and one International Designer of the Year award. In 2004, he launched his first menswear collection which became a huge hit and won him yet another award for British Menswear Designer of the Year.
The first fragrance of the brand Kingdom for women was introduced in 2003. The artistically shaped bottle and the aromatic and citrusy appeal of the perfume made it an instant success. Limited additions of Kingdom were launched in 2004 and 2006. Kingdom Summer came out in 2006. Another fabulous fragrance of the brand, McQueen for women, was introduced in 2005. Its powdery, floral and woody notes give it a universal and romantic appeal. This perfume was followed by McQueen Summer Mist, which came out in 2007. Currently, the brand does not have fragrances for men.
The tragic death of Alexander McQueen in 2010 shocked the fashion world, but his legacy will always be treasured. An exhibition displaying the spectacular creations of the designer was opened at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in May 2011. This was the most attended fashion exhibition at the Met ever.
The label which the designer started continues to product fabulous fashion creations. The chief designer Sarah Burton, McQueen's right-hand woman right from the start, creates elegant, hip and edgy works for the modern woman.
