Alexander McQueen’s Last Show – Watch it
If you love Avant Garde fashion you heard of Alexander McQueen. He was one of the most brilliant minds of our new century. His collections are truly art to wear and his shows were always memorable art performances.
Sadly, Alexander McQueen died two days ago, apparently took his own life. I can see some parallels between him and Van Gogh. Both brilliant to the point of insanity.
He was young, about 40 years. A rebel and a genius at odds with an industry that is more interested in selling than creating. You can see a retrospective of Alexander McQueen’s work from 2001 to his last collection at the New York Magazine site.
His New York store on 14th Street is closed until next week and an impromptu memorial is growing on the icy sidewalks.
His death leaves a void of creativity in the fashion world. He will be greatly missed. As Blondie once sang “Die Young, Stay Pretty”.
He was very pleased with his latest collections, shown in London this past October (2009) which sadly became his last. Titled “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea” and inspired by Darwin’s Theory of Evolution, it was streamed live on the web.
