Alexander McQueen was a British fashion designer and the youngest recipient of the British Designer of the Year between 1996 and 2003. He earned the title of “The Hooligan of the English Fashion” with his innovative and sometimes shocking designs. His clothing and shoes blend beauty, toughness and femininity. Since his death in February of 2010 his design house has carried on his tradition of style.
Celebrities that wear Alexander McQueen designs include Lady Gaga, Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna and Bjork. Lady Gaga wore a pair of his shoes in her video, “Bad Romance”. McQueen is credited for starting the use of skulls on fashion clothing and the rebirth of the low-rise jean that he dubbed “bumsters.” Often outrageous and out there, Alexander McQueen’s designs are also tailored to the everyday woman and man. Classic lines and funky prints make his clothing line a favorite among people who like to take fashion to the next level.
