McQueen explores the life of British fashion designer Alexander McQueen, who started his career in his teens. McQueen rose to fame in London of the 1990s, and by the turn of the millennium, became recognised as one of the most contemporary fashion designers of his day. Tragically he took his own life in 2010. Film and video might be the only medium that can capture the excitement of what McQueen was doing at the apex of his career, because it was so very cinematic. McQueen simply presents his best creative moments and shows the sheer brilliance of his work and what a genius he was.
