Alexander McQueen completed a Masters degree in Fashion Design at the iconic Central Saint Martin's in 1992, showing a successful first MA collection which was famously bought in its entirety by Isabella Blow. In then took less than ten years for Alexander McQueen to become one of the most respected and renowned fashion designers in the world. Now helmed by Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen is known for its romantic and decidedly contemporary nature. The ability to contrast elements is what lies at the heart of every collection, whether it be; fragility and strength, tradition and modernity or fluidity and severity. Every piece of Alexander McQueen clothing combines an in-depth working knowledge of bespoke British tailoring with the fine workmanship of French Haute Couture atelier and the impeccable finish of Italian craftsmanship.
