The History of Alexander McQueen


British Designer Alexander McQueen hits the scene with his distinct designs, which combined modern elements with classic Renaissance clothing.
Using diverse and dramatic shapes, patterns and materials in his collections, the colour red often took centre stage in the early days, combined with shades of black and white.


'Taxi Driver' was shown as McQueen's first collection, which was inspired by Martin Scorsese's film. It had a dark and gothic theme and attracted a lot of attention.
In the runway shows that followed, it was clear that McQueen drew a lot of inspiration from the English theatre and film scene.


The designers comes out with his own men's collection after working at Givenchy for a period of time, under his own name.
In the same year, McQueen is named 'Designer of the Year' by GQ Magazine.
