This tribute to Alexander McQueen (1969-2010) celebrates the genius of an iconic, imaginative, and inspirational fashion designer with more than 125 catwalk photographs of his work in addition to commentary from an experienced fashion journalist and tributes by prominent people in the fashion world. 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."
McQueen's dramatic designs were artistically successful and internationally recognized. He earned the British Designer of the Year award four times and his work was particularly favored by his celebrity clients including Sarah Jessica Parker, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Bjork, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

Maybe someday there will be a Big coffee table book that will make all us McQueen fans happy. For now, this book, in addition to the Met book, makes me very Happy :)
Please..If you are a die hard fan of McQueen, WAIT!!! Do not buy this piece of [...] excuse for book. There will be a respected curator/author, and publisher who will give all the time and dignity to create a masterful hardcover catalogue.
I will always think twice before I even consider buying any book published by A&C Black, and never will buy a book authored by Kristin Knox.
