The dA-Zed guide to Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty has finally come home to the city that birthed the man. Opening at the V&A five years after the fashion iconoclast’s death, the Alexander McQueen retrospective promises a groundbreakingly inclusive tribute to the designer and his vision. Whittling down the world of fashion’s most controversial, far-reaching and future-facing designer into a 26-point love letter feels, inevitably, too small; even in his quietest moments, McQueen’s romantic offensive against fashion’s prevailing mood for minimalism was unfailing.

Lace & Tea » Marchesa Spring 2010 Posted on September 17th, 2009 Georgina Chapman never disappoints me, I’ve adored her collection since she and Keren Craig began in 2004. The delicate lace, soft satin and the tattooed legs (are they stockings? Being McQueen’s muse You might not know her name, but you've seen her picture. It was September 2000 when journalist Michelle Olley (formerly of fetish magazine Skin Two and the short-lived reboot of Penthouse) got a call from Alexander McQueen’s right hand Sidonie Barton, saying she had a proposal for her. Olley had been put forward by casting agent she knew through the London club scene to be the centrepiece in McQueen’s monumental asylum-themed SS01 show VOSS, where models prowled around a padded room, their heads bandaged. For the show’s finale, the glass walls of a box in the centre of the runway fell down and shattered, revealing a naked Olley reclining on a chaise longue in an image that referenced a picture by American photographer Joel-Peter Witkin. As the audience broke into rapturous applause, Olley's fate as the focal point of one of the most powerful and provocative fashion shows in history was sealed. On the show's fifteenth anniversary, she reflects on her experience.

The easiest shirt ever I thought this shirt was easy to make, but it doesn’t compare to the one I made for Isabel this weekend. She started describing a shirt she’d seen: square, slightly cropped, very drapey. I asked her to draw a picture and she drew a rectangle. Yes, I can do that. We found the drapiest fabric in the house, a fairly loose knit left over from Rosie’s weekend project.

Alexander McQueen’s most dark and twisted moments “I find beauty in the grotesque,” Alexander McQueen once said – and, as evidenced by the late designer’s large and heralded body of work, he certainly did. For though McQueen’s collections were a triumph in technique and theatricality, they often left members of the audience with a sense of unease, in a combined state of wonder and repulsion. He rendered models’ eyes blood red, attached skeletons to their ankles and placed one in a glass case filled with moths. He drew inspiration from the dark and the twisted: Victorian mental asylum patients, 19th century serial killer Jack the Ripper, the gothic fairytales of the Grimm brothers, the atrocities committed by the British in Scotland and one of his ancestors who was hanged during the Salem Witchcraft Trials of 1692.
