Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen is a British luxury fashion house founded by designer Lee Alexander McQueen in 1992. Formerly worked as a Givenchy chief designer, McQueen was awarded “British Designer of the Year” by the British Fashion Awards four times for his work on his label. Its early collections were controversial and shocking, with unconventional and lavish runway shows. McQueen served as his brand’s creative director until his untimely death in 2010, with Sarah Burton taking this position afterwards. Following McQueen’s direction, Burton’s craftsmanship focuses on refinement and emotionalism. Burton also designed the dress that Catherine Middleton wore during her wedding to Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge.
