Alexander McQueen - British Fashion House
Alexander McQueen founded his namesake label in 1992. McQueen was known for his bold designs and rebellious concepts. The designer's collections boasted names such as Highland Rape. In 2000, McQueen received an investment from the Gucci group, which allowed him to expand with new stores. In 2005, McQueen launched his menswear range, showing collections during Milan Fashion Week. By 2006, McQueen looked towards the mid-luxury market by introducing McQ.
A more casual line, McQ looks to more trendy items with a youthful appeal. Sadly, McQueen took his own life in 2010. That same spring, Gucci Group chief executive Robert Polet announced the appointment of Sarah Burton as creative director. The designer had worked as McQueen's right hand since 1996. Since, Burton has continued McQueen's penchant for elegant tailoring and rich prints with a sophisticated flair.
