Great British fashion designer, Alexander McQueen was born on March 17, 1969 and died by suicide on February 11, 2010. At the age of 16, the young man entered Andersen and Sheppard as an apprentice tailor.

After having worked for several prestigious tailors in London and Milan, he entered the Saint Martins school directly at the postgraduate level. In 1992, his talent was noticed by Isabella Blow, editor of English Vogue. The couturier’s first collection is immortalized in the pages of the famous magazine. In 1996, he returned to Givenchy to replace John Galliano, and received the British Designer of the Year Award.

After leaving the brand in 2001, he launched his own label. Renowned for his controversial fashion shows, the man nicknamed “the enfant terrible” designed Kate Winslet’s wedding dress, and in 2003 he received the International Award from the Council of American Fashion Designers.

On the heart side, the designer joined forces with his partner Georges Forsyth in 2000. The unofficial marriage in Ibiza was short-lived as the couple separated in 2001.
