McQueen-The Documentary

Posted By: Terri
Category: Designer Spotlight

McQueen…. the movie is a quick yet intimate “behind the scenes documentary” about this uber private and immensely talented yet possibly tortured soul of the late designer we came to know as Alexander(Lee) McQueen.

If you’re looking for a movie/documentary that’s heavy on fashion and provides a story line that is both happy and tragic-I have just the flick for you. McQueen- a documentary that explores the life of British fashion designer Alexander McQueen, who started his career in his teens before gaining notice as designer for Givenchy and launching his own label, which continues to this day. He took his own life in 2010 at the age of 40.

The film has a brief viewing time of 111 minutes and includes intimate footage of his early years growing up in London’s east end, family life complete with touching commentary by his beloved Mother, his first foray into the design world as a Bespoke tailor on Savile Row (where he learned those extraordinary tailoring skills-which became synonymous with the McQueen label) and in a riveting story line provides the viewer with all the twists and turns of his ultimate discovery,extraordinary career success and personal demise that ended in his suicide in 2010.

I was entranced by this film,the fashion,the cast of characters he was surrounded by and the steady rise and heartbreaking demise of this creative genius known as Alexander McQueen.

My mother  (a fashion designer in her own right) always said  that “Good taste never goes out of style.” The similarity of these two gowns … designed more than 40 years apart is a testament to that! Style does indeed endure forever.
