    EDITED BY CL A IRE WI LCOX

    This definitive publication on Alexander McQueen (19692010) invites you into the creative mind and world

    of one of Britains most brilliant, daring,

    and provocative designers, and the many

    themes and references that shaped his

    visionary fashion collections.

    A true comprehensive study, this

    catalog is the first in-depth look at

    McQueen and explores key themes of the

    exhibitiontailoring, gothic, primitivism,

    naturalism, and futurism. The book also

    features previously unseen material as

    well as groundbreaking essays and feature

    spreads by multiple authors and leading

    fashion commentators. This kaleidoscopic

    approach explores themes central to the

    designers work and his collections, such as

    the psychology of fashion, natural history,

    the theatre and spectacle of his shows,

    and the key creative collaborators during

    McQueens lifetime.

    Alexander McQueen also offers an

    encyclopedic survey of McQueens catwalk

    collections, illustrated with striking images

    by leading fashion photographers, and

    specially commissioned photographs that

    capture the breathtaking skill of his designs

    and awesome theatricality of his shows.

    Claire Wilcox is senior curator of the

    Department of Furniture, Textiles and

    Fashion department at the V&A and lecturer

    at the London College of Fashion.
