Here’s your exclusive look at the upcoming Alexander McQueen documentary

“My shows are about Sex, Drugs and Rock n’ Roll. It’s for the excitement and the goosebumps. I want heart attacks. I want ambulances.”


It’s been two weeks since the teaser for the latest Alexander McQueen documentary was shared and the fashion world is waiting in anticipation for its release.

This latest biopic is said to mirror McQueen’s previous film ‘Savage Beauty’, which also held a long-standing residency in the world’s most prestigious fashion museums including the V&A and the MET museum.

The one-minute trailer shows some of the designer’s most iconic moments; from the early days learning his craft in Central Saint Martins in London, holographic images of Kate Moss at his 2006 show and a model circled by flames to his most recent avant-garde catwalk displays. McQueen was a behemoth of his generation and his influence and force will continue to be felt for a long time. It also reveals a deeper exploration of the designer’s imperfect life on his quest to dismantle the fashion industry.

Directed and produced by Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui, who came together to co-direct the film, it captures the short life of the late British fashion designer through high-intensity archive footage, behind-the-scenes clips, and emotional interviews that will draw you into the late British designer’s life. Lee Alexander McQueen was born in Britain and is known for having worked as chief designer at Givenchy from 1996 to 2001 before launching his eponymous label. His achievements in fashion earned him four British Designer of the Year awards (1996, 1997, 2001 and 2003), as well as the CFDA’sInternational Designer of the Year award in 2003.  McQueen died by suicide in 2010, at the age of forty, at his home in Mayfair, London.

The film isn’t released until June 8th, but here’s your chance to see the exclusive trailer.
