Life and Death

Lee Alexander McQueen was born on the 17th of March in 1969. He was a son of a teacher, Joyce, and of a taxi driver, Ronald. He spent his childhood in London. When the boy was 16, he dropped out school. The reason was his homosexuality. Boys teased Alexander and he couldn’t stand it anymore.

He found a job at the tailor’s shop, where he helped the owner to create man’s suits. He continued his career, working as a costume designer for some London Theater. Later he moved to Milan, doing the same job. After his successful work at Milan, Alexander (or “Lee” as he was called by his brothers and sisters – he had 5 of them) had already known exactly, that he wanted to become fashion designer. He entered Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design and got his Master Degree in 1992. It was the time to start his own business. His clothes that he made for women got very popular. It was he, who designed woman’s pants with extremely low waist line that soon got popular all over the world. In 2000 51% of stocks of his company was bought by Gucci. Alexander’s name gradually got more and more popular in the world of fashion.

Alexander McQueen’s aggressive fashion styling was shocking for fans of Givenchy, but just at first sight. Soon the fashion house became even more popular with contradictory collections of McQueen.

In 2001 he left Givenchy and founded his own label. In 2003 he got the British Award as the best designer of the year. He got this award 4 times.Alexander McQueen
