God Save McQueen

L'11 febbraio 2012 ricorre il secondo anniversario dalla morte dell'"Hooligan" della moda Alexander McQueen..
Nato a Londra il 17 marzo del '67, dotato di grande originalità e sensibilità artistica, a 16 anni decide di lasciare la scuola per buttarsi nel mondo del lavoro e fare esperienze nel mondo della moda a 360 gradi.



A 20 annni viene notato da Romeo Gigli che gli offre la possibilità di sostenere la sua prima esperienza  milanese.
Nel '92 torna a Londra, dove si diploma alla Saint Martin's School of Art.
Al termine degli studi crea la sua prima collezione che viene interamente acquisita dalla famosa Isabella Blow, mitica icona fashion ( in passato, assistente di Anna Wintour ), che viene colpita dal suo talento ed estro. La sua carriera subisce una svolta clamorosa e tra i due nasce una forte amicizia.

Nel '96 diventa direttore creativo della maison francese Givenchy che lascia dopo pochi anni perchè la ritiene troppo "costrittiva" per la sua personalità.
Provocatorio e trasgressivo, nel '99 fa sfilare a Londra una modella amputata delle gambe che con protesi di legno cavalca la passerella e dei robot usati nell'industria automobilistica che spruzzano vernice su abiti bianchi.



Nel 2001 entra a far parte del gruppo Gucci, apre boutiques a Londra, New York e Milano.

Vince per 4 anni il premio come miglior stilista inglese dell'anno, nel 2003 riceve dal consiglio Fashion Designer Awards il premio come  miglior stilista dell'anno.

Nel 2009 crea le famose scarpe "armadillo" indossate da Lady Gaga nel video Bad Romance.


A 40 anni, all'apice della sua carriera,viene trovato impiccato nella sua casa londinese.

Che dire..per me un vero genio..ha rivoluzionato il modo di far moda e spettacolo con i suoi abiti scenografici..

Forse questo articolo è una mini biografia, molto simile a tante altre però ho pensato fosse giusto ricordarlo.


The February 11, 2012 marks the second anniversary of the death '"Hooligan" fashion Alexander McQueen ..
Born in London on March 17th of '67, with great originality and artistic sensitivity, 16 years decides to leave school to jump into the world of work and experience the world of fashion to 360 degrees.



At 20 he was noticed by Romeo Gigli annni that offers the opportunity to take his first job in Milan.

In '92 he returned to London, where he graduated from Saint Martin's School of Art.
After completing his studies he created his first collection that is entirely captured by the famous Isabella Blow, the legendary fashion icon (former assistant to Anna Wintour), which is struck by his talent and inspiration. His career takes a sharp turn between two sensational and a strong friendship was born.

In '96 he became creative director of French fashion house Givenchy, which she left after a few years because it considers too "restrictive" for his personality.
Defiant and rebellious in the '99 show in London is a model of amputated legs with a wooden prosthesis rides on the boardwalk and robots used in the automotive industry that spray paint on white clothes.

In 2001 he joined the Gucci Group, opened boutiques in London, New York and Milan.

4 years to win the prize for best British designer of the year, in 2003 he received advice from Fashion Designer Awards the award for best designer of the year.

In 2009 creates the famous shoes "armadillo" worn by Lady Gaga in the video Bad Romance.

At 40, the peak of his career, was found hanged in his London home.

What to say .. for me .. a true genius has revolutionized the way we make and fashion show with her spectacular outfits ..

Perhaps this article is a mini biography, much like many others but I thought it was right to remember.
