High Fashion Thursday, Issue #6: Alexander McQueen, 1969-2010

I am still reeling over the death of fashion's most expressive, experimental, sensual and provocative designers, Alexander McQueen.  His work as head designer at Givenchy for five years lead him to the founding of his own forward-thinking designs known to be "unconventional" and full of "shock tactic".  Despite the unconvention of his clothing, he has been worn by many iconic women such as Bjork, Rihanna, and most recently Lady Gaga in her recent music video, Bad Romance.  He had won the prestigious British Designer of the Year four times, whilst leading one of the most successful and recognizable brands of couture fashion.

We can look forward to Paris Fashion Week with the unveiling of the latest Alexander McQueen collection, which will continue in the spirit of its founder and his vision.  Take a look at these pieces from some of his most memorable collections, and watch the runway shows by clicking below the pictures.  Content of most Alexander McQueen runway shows display mature content and may not be safe for work or appropriate for some younger viewers.  Viewer discretion is advised.
