His shows in London were fantastic, escpecially his pre-Gucci at Givenchy years. I think his Paris shows became grander but the London shows were more thought out and thought provoking.

FirstView has all his shows, Showstudio.com has video of some of his shows You must see the 6th video, the end is incredible. Showstudio also has the show McQueen put on to celebrate the American Express Black card, or something, it's basically his greatest hits.

Well,his London shows really weren't any less theatrical....just more intimate than Paris somehow. Plus,as said maybe slightly more stunning.

The only Paris show that I really like of McQueen is the "Sleepy Hollow" show.

In 2000, after he left Givenchy, McQueen felt a slight emptying of his pocket, cause he was flying of his Givenchy money. So McQueen and Gucci joined forces, Gucci bought 51% of McQueen and are financially backing him. With Gucci, McQueen has so much more doors that are open, he has bag makers (Gucci) and shoe makers (Sergio Rossi) that will make his bag without a contract or anything, so he can get more stuff out there.

Adam_Fan, I have no clue where he would show. I guess where everyone else showed, in his later shows he would have a big auditorium like thing where everyone sat around the stage/runway, the previous were normal back and forth runways with a couple of perks and such.

Vogue.co.uk has a piece on McQueen
