From the Back Cover:

An intimate and revealing look at the personal and professional life of the fashion world's most visionary designer.

This incredible volume strips away the layers of legend surrounding Alexander McQueen, revealing the sartorial genius and the true history of the man who reinvented modern fashion. Uncovering new details about Lee Alexander McQueen's humble childhood in East London, author Judith Watt traces the young designer's ascent—from his graduate collection at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design to his over-the-top runway shows to the designs he created just days before his death at age forty. Providing new insights into the dark passion and inspiration that guided each fever-pitched runway show, this fully illustrated portrait delivers a truly comprehensive, in-depth look at the most provocative designer of a generation. Illustrated throughout with McQueen's personal drawings and ephemera as well as a mixture of exquisite catwalk and editorial fashion images, Alexander McQueen: The Life and the Legacy is every bit as stunning as the designer himself.

About the Author:

Judith Watt, Head of Fashion History at Central Saint Martins (CSM), and personal friend of McQueen himself, is the author of several books on fashion including The Penguin Book of Twentieth-Century Fashion Writing (Viking, 1999), Ossie Clark 1964-74 (V&A Publications, 2003) and Dogs in Vogue (Little Brown 2009). Judith is currently writing a book in association with Vogue on Elsa Schiaparelli. She is also a contributor to Vogue, the Guardian and BBC Radio 4, and lives in London. She has said: "Anyone that works in the fashion industry, particularly as a designer in London, understands the pressures he was under. Trying to succeed in the fashion industry is very difficult, and very, very few people can do it."
