This smart boy destined for a future in fashion belonged to a very modest background. McQueen was appointed as a head designer at the Louis Vuitton-owned Givenchy fashion line and launched his own menswear line in 2004.

Born on 17th March 1969 in London to Ronald and Joyce, Alexander McQueen was the youngest of six children. He started designing dresses for his sisters at a young age and showed his interest in the fashion world. McQueen left the school and went for an apprenticeship at the Anderson and Shepherd on the Savile Row. This opportunity helped him to sharpen his tailoring and technical skills, for which he became famous. While on Savile Row, his clients included Prince Charles and Mikhail Gorbachev. Before travelling to Milan and working for Romeo Gigli, he spent his time working for Koji Tatsuno.

McQueen’s early collections developed his reputation for controversy with trousers named “bumsters” and a collection named as “Highland Rape”. His “bumsters” evolved a trend in low rise jeans which attracted many debate and comments on their debut.
