When I first knew about Alexander McQueen, I thought his collection was rather weird and eccentric. Then, as time goes by, I realized that this guy is actually a genius, so I grew more and more in love with this english designer. His creations are totally knock-out with perfect detailing and amazing alterations.

Therefore, I present you, as the next VieCouture favorite designer, Mr. Alexander McQueen.

He was born in London in 1969 and started his career by the age of 16 as an apprentice in traditional tailors. At the age of 20, he was employed by designer Koji Tatsuno. McQueen later on traveled to Milan and became Romeo Gigli’s design assistant. He then returned to London and completed his Masters Degree in Fashion Design.

Throughout his career, McQueen has received several awards, such as from CFDA as the International Designer of the year in 2003, the prestigious award from the Queen herself as the “Most Excellent Commander of  the British Empire”. He was also awarded as the British Menswear Designer of the year in 2004.

Besides haute couture, his creations include shoes, fragrance, menswear, eyewear and accessories. Clearly this genius doesn’t plan to stop. Let’s wait what else he has in the store for us!

Here are some of his breathtaking creations from Spring – Fall 2007!
