stationservice Main : Carine Brancowitz for people who know everything cool already !! — Documenting Style Daily Troy Galluzzi The Towering Genius of Alexander McQueen Alexander McQueen’s extraordinary talent was not just limited to creating clothes: the man also knew how to put on a spectacular show, quite unlike any other. In this post I am going to look back on McQueen’s fashion career. Of course I will by no means be able to cover everything, and when I say ‘look back’ I don’t really mean it literally: I sadly never attended a single McQueen show, and I am ashamed to say it is only now that I have properly discovered some of his most amazing shows and collections, many of which took place long before I was really aware of fashion. Still, this will hopefully imbue the post with something of an optimism: not so much looking back, but rather looking into, and looking forwards at, the incredible legacy which Alexander McQueen leaves.
