Top critical review
on 14 October 2015
As a huge fan of Alexander Mcqueen, I was eager to get my hands on all the books dedicated to him and his work. I cannot fathom how some reviewers have given this book five stars because it does not deserve any. It is a complete rip off. It focuses on the process of creating the Fall 2009 collection. You just have random photographs of garbage, some leftover food probably from a lunch break, some fittings, preparation of the stage...etc. There are no descriptions, so everything looks disconnected and unappealing. The idea of the book is great, but the execution is poor. I would have liked to see the complete creation process, from sketches to choosing of fabrics, to cutting, stitching, selection of models, accessories. ...etc complete with description. This would have been better suited as a documentary. For those who still wish to purchase the book, I'd advise borrowing one if possible and see for yourselves. Overpriced for what it offers.
