Alexander McQueen - Couturier

Alexander McQueen distinguished himself from the start with ground-breaking collections and dramatic avant-garde shows. Lee Alexander McQueen, CBE (1969 – 2010) was a British fashiondesigner & couturier best known for his in-depth knowledge of bespoke British tailoring, his tendency to juxtapose strength with fragility in his collections, as well as the emotional power and raw energy of his provocative fashion shows.

He is also known for having worked as chief designer at Givenchy from 1996 to 2001 and for founding his own label Alexander McQueen. His achievements in fashion earned him four British Designer of the Year awards (1996, 1997, 2001 and 2003), as well as the CFDA's International Designer of the Year award in 2003.
