    Author: GLEASON KATHERINE

    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    From Jack the Ripper Stalks His Victims, his 1992 graduate collection, to Plato's Atlantis, the last show before his death in 2010, Lee Alexander McQueen was as celebrated for the meticulous craftsmanship and stunning originality of his designs as he was notorious for his theatrical - and often controversial - runway shows.

    Taking his inspiration from sources as diverse as his own Scottish ancestry, Alfred Hitchcock movies and Yoruba mythology, McQueen brought together exquisite tailoring and avant-garde performance art.

    Combining gripping narrative and vivid photography with quotes from the designer and those who knew him best, this book brings each of the designer's runway shows to life, including a look at the pieces and inspiration behind Angels and Demons, the show he was working on before his untimely death.

    This is the definitive, immersive account of a unique career and a fitting tribute to the enfant terrible of British fashion.
