ABSTRACT
In this article, the author presents his experiences about Alexander McQueen, a British fashion designer. The author says that McQueen had apprenticed with a Savile Row tailor, where he learned how to cut a seventeenth-century doublet and an Edwardian bodice. McQueen had captured the contemporary London Zeitgeist and channeled their dark imaginings which include anarchy and violence, into clothing.
