Heartbreakingly Brilliant Visual History of the Genius Alexander McQueen
I may never buy or wear couture - but the Savage Beauty MET retrospective of his work is mind boggling genius! The observations in the book, of those who worked with Alexander McQueen through the process of design and creation of his work, is riveting, and heartbreaking for his loss.

All good....Birthday Gift went over well!
It was a birthday gift for our son..... He is 20 years old, and totally loved it! He is an avid fan! We picked the right gift and found it on E Bay! Thank you
The book focuses on the highly sophisticated narrative structures found in McQueen's collections and in his astonishing and extravagant runway presentations, which suggested the most avant-garde installation and performance art. Intended as an assessment of Alexander McQueen's entire career, the book includes in-depth studies of six collections that illustrate and encapsulate thematic chapters as well as an interview with Sarah Burton, the new creative director of Alexander McQueen who had been the designer's right-hand design aide since 1996.
One of the best coffeetable books to have in your collection!! Alelxander McQueen is one of the most talented designers that have ever existed in the fashion industry and his legacy still continues even though he is no longer with us. I wish that I would have had the opportunity to be at the exhibit in 2011 because I am sure that I was breathtaking to see it in person.
Great book! Thank you very much . It is wonderful to see the exquisite designs that the great Alexander McQueen has produced!
