“For everyone left behind, there will eventually be consolation, however scant right now, in a body of work whose power will never die.” Tim Blanks
Today the fashion and art world mourns the loss of the renowned, acclaimed, fashion genuis Alexander McQueen. From Savile Row, as an apprentice tailor, to LVMH Moët Hennessey Louis Vuitton, McQueen established his career as a fashion designer in all the most awe-inspiring ways.
There are so many things that can be said, and there are so many things that we will dearly miss about waiting on the edges of our seats every season for a new jaw-dropping show from McQueen. McQueen’s influence in fashion was viral, and I have personally never made a piece or drawn out a collection without some direct influence or inspiration from McQueen.
I could ramble on about McQueen for days, however, I believe today should be a day to remember and make note of all of your favorite McQueen fashion moments… mine being his latest show, the Spring 2010 Plato’s Atlantis. So take the time and ruffle through the archives of the wondrous worlds that McQueen created through fashion design.
“McQueen represented the kind of volatile imagination that transforms clothes into a cultural tapestry, intensely personal therapy and political provocation.” Washington Post
