Alexander McQueen pushed fashion design beyond its traditional parameters, and the record-breaking exhibition 'Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty', held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2011, celebrated his collections as true and breathtaking works of art. This accompanying hardcover book, including a foreword by curator Andrew Bolton and an introduction by fashion journalist Susannah Frankel, documents his extraordinary creative vision with Romanticism-themed chapters, photography by Sølve Sundsbø and quotes from the designer.
