McQueen

A vibrant portrait of the late UK fashion icon

London Eastender Lee Alexander McQueen started his career as an apprentice at Saville Row, before his rag-trade aunt put up the money for him to study at Central Saint Martins.

The influential stylist Isabella Blow (who persuaded him to use his middle name, Alexander) championed McQueen after seeing his graduation show. By 27, McQueen was head designer at Givenchy. He went on to win British Designer of the Year four times.

His controversial shows made headline after headline. Behind the scenes, he drove his staff too hard, abandoned close friends, and tragically lost his way. This stunning documentary is an appropriately lavish and multifaceted celebration of his life and boundary-pushing creations.

He was a Brothers Grimm of fashion, enchanting and captivating the audience with the most incredibly beautiful clothes, only to make their stomachs lurch with the underlying menace that shot through his work. – Jess Cartner-Morley, The Guardian

This appropriately flamboyant film explores McQueen’s humble beginnings, his inspirations, his tight knit band of collaborators, his creative process and the violent brilliance of his work. Like McQueen’s designs, it is thrilling, troubling and tinged with tragedy. – Wendy Ide, Screen International
