Ian Bonhôte, Peter Ettedgui
cast:
Alexander McQueen

A personal look at the extraordinary life, career and artistry of fashion designer Alexander McQueen, whose rags-to-riches story is a modern-day fairy tale, laced with the gothic. Mirroring the savage beauty, boldness and vivacity of his design, this documentary is an intimate revelation of McQueen’s own world, both tortured and inspired, which celebrates a radical and mesmerizing genius of profound influence. “Even if the dramas and dictates of couturiers and catwalks mean little to you, it is hard to resist the propulsive energy that director Ian Bonhote and co-director and writer Peter Ettedgui bring to the story of a designer whose background, beliefs and gifts were not what one would expect.” (LA Times) “A spectacular visual album of his work and an achingly moving account of the incomplete life behind it.” (Variety)

Cosponsored with the Dept. of Fiber Science and Apparel Design.
