Alexander mcqueen

I’m lucky enough to remember the good old days when McQueen’s shows were the very epitome of style and showmanship. Like those who claim to have seen the Sex Pistols at Manchester’s Lesser Free Trade Hall, I swear I sat front row when Shalom Harlow took to a revolving platform and made spray painted love to a robot. I witnessed Kate Moss and Erin O’Connor plead insanity in the lunacy themed Voss show, and watched poor skeletal urchins endure pelting rain— very London—as they negotiated the treacherous catwalk of The Golden Shower. Anticipation is everything. Each season offered the unthinkable. McQueen became adept as impaling, shackling and subverting fashion show culture with an unflinchingly enthusiasm. “I don’t want to do a cocktail party,” he once said, “I’d rather people left my shows and vomited”.
