In honor of the great designer, creator, and innovator that Lee McQueen was I put together a
small recap of his work, the farthest I could go back in time was up to the spring 1999 where
he sprayed Shalom Harlow's white dress with paint on a stage in front of the
entire fashion world, all the way up to his greatest and last show where he boldly did what
only he knew best, mixing prints, textures, shapes, and putting on a spectacle for the world
to remember him by.
Alexander McQueen was a romantic at heart, romanticism hidden behind a beautiful sheet of
dark colors, rough edges, great Savile Row tailoring, Parisian couture, gothic imagery, sombre
leitmotifs but without a doubt McQueen was really one of the great masters of fashion of our
time, with him a bright light has been put out.
Alexander McQueen loved A-lines skirts, lace, bodices, cinched waistlines, jumpsuits, prints,
theatrics, and most of all he loved putting on a show for the world to watch awestruck with
one man's creative force.
We will never be able to understand why he did what he did, but for now all we can do is
remember his work and the beauty that he put out into the universe.
Fall/Winter 1999 & Spring/Summer 1999
