Alexander McQueen is located on Savile Row, where brand founder Lee McQueen had a previous connection. Firstly as apprentice tailor to Anderson & Sheppard and later to Gieves & Hawkes as a pattern cutter. Four times winner of Designer of the Year Award, McQueen distinguished himself as an avant-garde and unconventional designer and one who brought an iconic sense of fantasy and revolution to fashion.
Sarah Burton, formerly McQueen’s right hand woman, has since become Creative Designer for the Alexander McQueen brand. It was her collaboration with the David Collins Studio that brought about the flagship store which offers a men’s ready to wear collection as well as a bespoke tailoring service.
