Legendary British fashion designer Alexander McQueen brought daring levels of theatricality and complexity to his 1990s runway shows, “My collections have always been autobiographical”, he has said, “A lot to do with my own sexuality and coming to terms with the person I am”.

McQueen’s story is told in six chapters, each developed around a pivotal moment in his life coinciding with the launch of a new collection in one of his revolutionary fashion shows where the catwalk was transformed into a dramatic spectacle. As his star rose, however, so did the pressure and accompanying anxiety to strive for greater heights of creativity.
