Alexander McQueen is one of the most talked about, controversial and inspiring fashion designers of his generation. Born into a working class East End family, McQueen left school at sixteen with one O-Level. His rapid rise through the fashion industry has seen him open boutiques around the world, man the helm of a Parisian Couture house, and be awarded the British Designer of the Year award four times, alongside a CBE. Known for his strong opinions, a series of clashes with the fashion establishment has earned him the label "the hooligan of English fashion". He now shows his clothing in Paris.
