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.

In Margaret Fuller's Memoirs she wrote, "I remember how, as a little child, I had stopped myself one day on the stairs, and asked, How came I here? How is it that I seem to be this Margaret Fuller?

Jean Paul Gaultier [electronic resource]

Jean Paul Gaultier is the quintessential bad boy of French fashion and one of the industry's most flamboyant characters. His Gallic charm and tongue-in-cheek witticisms are reflected in collections that are as full of fantasy as they are of classical poise. This program profiles the fashion designer who put men in skirts and introduced lingerie as a fashion statement - a darling of the celebrity firmament with Madonna and Björk as two of his faithful followers. Yet in spite of all his outrageousness, Gaultier is a consummate French original who delights in mixing classic design with the avant-garde.

John Galliano [electronic resource]

Madness, delirium, and decadence - these are words that have attached themselves to John Galliano, whose sensibilities combine a reverence for the past that springs naturally from his Spanish roots and a sense of theater sharpened by his English upbringing. This program profiles the controversial fashionista, who has made a career of fashion "moments" ranging from a London graduation show in 1984 to couture work in Paris for Christian Dior.

Valentino [electronic resource]

We are used to the idea of the celebrity designer-thanks, largely, to Valentino Garavani, who is arguably the prototype.

This program offers a retrospective of the life and career of the ineffably chic fashion designer known simply as Valentino.
