iCon: Alexander McQueen
Alexander McQueen was no doughtily one of the fashion industry most gifted and controversial designers, from his elaborate collections to his extravagant shows and his crazy and polemic life. McQueen gave us some of the greatest designs we will ever get to see on a runaway, a model, and the pages of a magazine editorial or a socialite girl on page six.

McQueen was no stranger to controversy, he was often criticized for his presentations and the odd and non classical nature of his designs, he was a true artist, a visionary, someone who dared stepped out of his and the industry’s comfort zone.
Mcqueen had a traumatic life and suffered from depression, it was this last the alleged cause of his early depart in 2010 at the young age of 41. His dark never overshadowed the designer he always presented elaborate and innovative designs and his shows, he never failed to entertain the audiences.
It’s very hard to single out one of McQueen’s collections, but my overall time favorite will always be the 2010 SS Alien- esque collection; everything about it was unique, innovative and original, something that characterized him very well. From the structure of the dresses to the heels, this collection will always be on my mind for so many different reasons.

His memory lives on, in people’s minds, on museum exhibits, on magazines editorial, and in many closets around the world. His legacy will carry on.
