“No one discovered Alexander McQueen, McQueen discovered himself”
Few designers have had as much impact on the fashion world as Alexander McQueen. Featuring never-seen-before footage to reveal the man behind the brand, Ian Bonhôte and filmmaker Peter Ettedgui chronicle the designer’s “tortured but inspired” life through interviews with close friends and family members.
Coinciding with the rise of ‘Cool Britannia’, a renewed sense of optimism within the UK gave McQueen the platform he needed to disrupt the fashion industry, with little regard for any offence caused along the way –the boldness and vivacity of his designs provoked and subverted the fashion industry with trademark charm.
Providing an intimate portrayal of both the man and the myth, McQueen deftly portrays a radical and mesmerizing genius of profound influence.
Our exclusive preview of the film screening will be followed by a live Q&A with directors Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui.
