Alecander MQueen

Also included are photographs from his last collection, presented at Paris Fashion Week in 2010, and hailed by international media and fashion reviewers.

The Guardian called it “truly spectacular…a triumph”; the L.A. Times praised it as “masterpieces… runway showstoppers”; The Telegraph raved “The designs were vivid, dramatic and evocative…an emphatic demonstration of the intense skill and artistry of McQueen” and The New York Times reviewed as “His vision of Gothic glory, with a world bathed in religious symbolism, was translated not just with immense subtlety and beauty but also with the urgent futurism that was the essence of his spirit.”
