This documentary chronicles the life of Alexander McQueen, beginning with his time as a working class student in London’s East End struggling to infiltrate a fashion industry beset by class prejudice. Through his prodigious talent he secured an apprenticeship on Saville Row, before getting a place on the celebrated MA course at St Martin’s College. There, his groundbreaking graduate show launched a meteoric rise through his industry, revolutionising the world of fashion in the process. However as his fame increased, McQueen became increasingly uncomfortable with celebrity and this – combined with mental health struggles and a relentless obsession to constantly push boundaries in his work – led to addiction and a tragic decline. With intimate access to those closest to him, as well as extraordinary footage from his shows which came to resemble art installations more than conventional catwalk parades, this compelling film honours the man’s innovation, his dark, troubled genius, and his impact across popular culture.
Archive footage is used to tell the life and career of iconic soul singer Amy Winehouse.
Fascinating documentary about US Vogue magazine which exposes both the artistry and the frivolity of high-end fashion.
