Alexander McQueen, Fall 2006… He’s Back!

When McQueen is at the top of his game, is there anyone better?

I once interviewed the fashion directors of Saks, Bergdorf and Neimans, I asked which were their two or three favorite fashion shows of all-time, each one mentioned a different McQueen show among their favorites.

The Asylum, the Wind Tunnel, the Dance – Alexander has created some of the most memorable shows of our generation.
Fall 2006 show with Kate will go down as The Hologram, chalk up another for the ages.

Dear Gucci,
Cut Alexander McQueen some slack, Bottega is up and going, run Tomas Maier ragged for profits and leave Alexander to create the physical form of our dreams.

    I enjoyed reading those interviews you mentioned, although at the time I didn’t know it was you, “The Sartorialist”, who had done them!

    Here is a link though, for anyone who hasn’t seen it-

    I wouldn’t expect anything less from Alexander McQueen. He truly his High Fashion and knows how to keep people’s attention without comprimising his style

    It's nice OK, but sincerely, when back to reality, who wears that on the street???
    That is where I remember how much I loved YSL who more than anyone, loved women!!

    Not sure I get that at all
