Review

Alexander McQueen: Fashion Visionary is a brilliant new book celebrating the work of the late designer. -- The Guardian

This retrospective exploring the designer's work is densely packed with images, illustrations, anecdotes and insights --Independent (Top 10 Style Book)

By concentrating on the professional rather than the personal Judith has done Mr McQueen's legacy a great service. --James Sherwood, Fashion Journalist

(The book)...provides fascinating insights … The illustrations are lavish --Irish Times

With a foreword by his close friend, muse and avid collector of his work Daphne Guinness, this handsome tome offers insight into the Hackney-born designer's unseen world. ... If you buy one book on McQueen, let this be it. --Time Out Online

It provides fascinating insights into his early training as a tailor, with first-hand accounts from people who worked with him, and chronicles the background and inspiration behind each of his collections from the first ones in London right up to the final runway shows in Paris. --Irish Times Magazine

... celebrates Lee the radical thinker, provides history with a heart, and allows the stunning imagery room to fan out its feathers in full bleed spreads. --i-D Magazine (Sarah Raphael)

A well researched and illustrated tribute to Alexander McQueen --Sunday Times Style

It's already on our Christmas wish list --red

None of the many books on McQueen come close to this handsome new volume. --Time Out

From the Back Cover

An intimate and revealing look at the personal and professional life of the fashion world's most visionary designer.

This incredible volume strips away the layers of legend surrounding Alexander McQueen, revealing the sartorial genius and the true history of the man who reinvented modern fashion. Uncovering new details about Lee Alexander McQueen's humble childhood in East London, author Judith Watt traces the young designer's ascent from his graduate collection at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design to his over-the-top runway shows to the designs he created just days before his death at age forty. Providing new insights into the dark passion and inspiration that guided each fever-pitched runway show, this fully illustrated portrait delivers a truly comprehensive, in-depth look at the most provocative designer of a generation. Illustrated throughout with McQueen's personal drawings and ephemera as well as a mixture of exquisite catwalk and editorial fashion images, Alexander McQueen: The Life and the Legacy is every bit as stunning as the designer himself." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
