Summary
As one of the brightest stars on the British fashion scene, the late Alexander McQueen pushed the limits of what's possible while sparking a good deal of controversy along the way. During the early years, his provocative shows were confrontational enough to qualify as performance art, but underneath the showmanship McQueen was a master technician with an imagination that catapulted his career from the raw edginess of London to the aristocratic atelier of Hubert de Givenchy in Paris. Filmed in 2003, this program traces McQueen's career as it was rising to ever-greater heights.
