    alexander mcqueen is such a sweetheart...to think that such a warm person designs such meticulous and brutal (in the chic-est of ways, mind you) clothes.


    :blush: :crush: :wub:

    Nice article - it comes across as insightful - I guess 'cause it's his mum asking the questions. :flower:

    I respect and admire his craft as a designer, but some alleged personal accounts of his behavior from his former assitants are far from "warm" and "sweetheart-like"... :innocent:

    He seems like someone you could have a really interesting conversation with. I would love to talk with him about anything, fashion, music, art, politics.....whatever. He just seems cool to talk to.

    Thanks for an interesting article, Kit. I found the part about his meeting with the Queen to be very insightful.

    JM: What is your most terrifying fear?
    AM: Dying before you.
    JM: Thank you, son. What makes you proud?
    AM: You.
    JM: Why?
    AM: No, no, ask the next one: "What makes you furious?" You! [laughs]
    JM: No, go on, what makes you proud?
    AM: When things go right, when the collection goes right, when everyone else in the company's proud.
    JM: What makes you furious?
    AM: Bigotry.
    JM: What makes your heart miss a beat?
    AM: Love.
    JM: Love for children? Love for adults? Love for animals?
    AM: Falling in love.

    Tks, Kit for sharing!
    You know Lee's my all-time fave designer!

    Le .. I kinda get it ... the only parts non-staged seem to be when they argue and go a bit off-topic from the question ... though I'll have to admit I'm madly in love with the reply about his greatest fear ... gotta love the man for it!
    I just wish they went a bit further about his hobbies ... his thing for birds and falconing (sp?), etc ...
