亞歷山大‧麥昆(lexander McQueen)英國服裝設計師,是最年輕的英國時尚獎(British Fashion Awards)的得主,曾四度獲得年度最佳英國設計師(British Designer of the Year),曾和紀梵希(Givenchy)簽訂五年合同,所經營的麥昆集團也極為成功,並獲時尚大牌古馳集團(Gucci)看好,買下大部分股權。

2010年4月,麥昆自殺,年僅40歲。

本書訪問麥昆最親近的家人、朋友、愛人,從麥昆的童年談起,一個倫敦東區計程車司機的孩子如何一路走到紙醉金迷、奢華絢爛的時尚界的頂峰?他的品牌不僅名人喜愛,也受到王室青睞,凱特王妃結婚時,穿的就是麥昆設計衣服。但麥昆自信、叛逆的形象背後,藏著一顆纖細的心,在殘酷的時尚界,他逐漸開始仰賴毒品作為自己衝鋒陷陣的動力來源,同時豐富的感情生活也並沒有為他帶來真愛,而這些都一步步導致他最後走上絕路。

The first, definitive biography of the iconic, notoriously private British fashion designer Alexander McQueen “offers new insights...and provides unprecedented access to a misunderstood soul” (The Boston Globe).

When forty-year-old Alexander McQueen committed suicide in February 2010, a shocked world mourned the loss. McQueen had risen from humble beginnings as the son of an East London taxi driver to scale the heights of fame, fortune, and glamour. He created a multimillion-dollar luxury brand that became a favorite with celebrities, including Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. He designed clothes for the world’s most beautiful women and royalty, most famously the Duchess of Cambridge, who wore a McQueen dress on her wedding day.

But behind the confident facade and bad-boy image, lay a sensitive soul who struggled to survive in the ruthless world of fashion. As the pressures of work intensified, McQueen became increasingly dependent on the drugs that contributed to his tragic end. Meanwhile, his failure to find lasting love in a string of boyfriends only added to his despair. And then there were the secrets that haunted his sleep…

A modern-day fairy tale infused with the darkness of a Greek tragedy, Alexander McQueen provides “a thorough and emotionally compelling exploration…of a complex and enigmatic artist” (Publishers Weekly). Andrew Wilson’s “magnificent” (The Independent, UK) and “compelling and heavily researched bio” (Entertainment Weekly), featuring never-before-seen photographs and rare interviews, dispels myths, corrects inaccuracies, and shares new insights into McQueen’s private life and the source of his creative genius.
