This item was a bought as a gift for my girlfriend. She loves everything that is Alexander Mcqueen and this book was a great gift to her.

It has got full page glossy images of his designs with snippets of dialogue explaining influences and touches that make the deigns unigue (even though his designs were unique enough). Its a must buy for anyone who is a fan of Mcqueen and a fan of Fashion

I ordered this book knowing quite alot about McQueen and his work but on recieving this beautifully presented/designed book I was amazed by the excellent photographs which really bring out the craftsmanship of his work. The cover that changes into McQueen was an unexpected bonus. Even if he was still alive and he had this book published it is still a testimony to his skill at cutting a pattern, his tailoring skills and his empathy with fabrics and the way he combines hard with the soft. This book is certainly well worth the price and more.

Highly recommend.

A must for any McQueen fan, the cover effect is enticing and the gorgeous full page pics are intercut with quotes from McQueen and people who worked with him, that provide a great insight into the mind of a man who was a visionaire

Bought this as a gift for my girlfriend. She loved it and it is now her favourite book. She makes me wash my hands before turning the pages lol. Excellent quality and the content is superb.

The exhibition of the MET Savage Beauty about McQueen piece of work is just a highlight of how creative, outstanding and unique he was. The photos are beautifully edited and the selection of outfits are totally remarkable. It's a bit sad though to think we won't have his imagination anymore but we can enjoy this book, almost as a piece of art. Lucky those who have the chance to see the exhibition in NY.
