This book chronicles every McQueen fashion show since his graduate collection. It is great to have an overview of every collection he produced, and the drama and theatrics that went with them. The only downside is that I wanted to see more pictures of the clothes!
While I would have liked to see more pictures of McQueen's creations (where is the book that has everything?) I very much appreciated the chronological format and careful photo choices that make up this book. It is rare that we see a fashion book that presents a designer's collections in such an organized fashion, so it is very much applauded when it happens. Maybe it's a format that only works for short-lived designers with a finite body of work (the other example I've seen chronologizes Dior's ...more
This beautiful book follows the evolution of Alexander Mcqueen through his collections. I was pleased that there was little commentary on his personal life and the clothing was allowed to take center-stage. The only thing I would change about this book is that I was left wanting more images of the clothing. Although, to include every piece would have resulted in an unrealistically enormous book.

awesome and awe inspiring. read savage beauty as well. fashion design is so much more... the butterfly hat is one of the best, and the girl who lived in the tree collection amazed!
What an eye-catching coffee table book! Alexander Mcqueen has always been a favourite of mine and this book truly captures his genius talent and evolution through the years. Filled with beautiful photos and just the right amount of text, I think this book is great for any fashion lover or anyone who wants to learn about his work.
I love Alexander McQueen I wish I had known more about him before he passed. This book is a comprehensive look at every runway show ever did. If you are an Alexander McQueen fan check this out.
Excellent book. Had amazing pictures of Alexander McQueen's fashion shows. Really portrayed the person he was.
