One of the most influential designers, McQueen consistently pushed boundaries of fashion, both through ingenious cut and construction of his designs to always performance like spectacular shows.

McQueen gathered his inspiration from a wide range of references from films, art and literature of different eras but his greatest inspiration was to be his own vast imagination.
