“A savagely beautiful tribute that the late, irreverent fashion designer Alexander McQueen would surely have appreciated.” – David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
From his early life in England apprenticing with designers, to his breakthrough as a fashion industry maverick with a daring and confrontational style, to his international notoriety as the creator of boundary-pushing theatrical runway shows that earned him equal attention from fans and detractors alike, McQueen plays like a modern-day fairy tale laced with dark gothic overtones, detailing how the artist’s ever-rising stardom created accompanying pressure and anxiety to strive for ever-greater heights of genius.
