A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

The Craftmanship of Alexander Mcqueen

British Fashion Council / London / Art

Alexander McQueen’s untimely death in 2010 shocked the world. He was a comet from the start, named British Designer of the Year in 1996 (he won it three more times), and fulfilling that promise in collection after collection—each one uncompromising, original, and unshakeable in its vision. As McQueen himself once said, “I want to be the purveyor of a certain silhouette or a way of cutting, so that when I am dead and gone people will know that the twenty-first century was started by Alexander McQueen.” This comprehensive online exhibition presents his history, that of his line, and the story of his successor, the poetic Sarah Burton. —E.C.
