Alexander Mcqueen: The Life and the Legacy

Alexander Mcqueen: The Life and the Legacy, is the third book added to biography of the British famed designer Alexander Mcqueen who commited suicide two-and-a-half years ago.
But this biography is different than others.
Author Judith Watt promises that this piece will be different than others saying ''There’s stuff in this book that no one’s researches before, and photos and drawings no one has ever seen before''.
It's an initmate look at the personal and professional life of the fashion world’s most visionary designer. 

Author Judith Watt, a renowned fashion historian and personal friend of McQueen, addresses the couture-level craftsmanship of each collection and provides insight into the inspiration that guided each fever-pitched runway show, from the sublime to the downright controversial and avant-garde, like the “Highland Rape” collection of 1995. A final chapter addresses the legacy of the Alexander McQueen label and the present-day work of its creative director Sarah Burton. Complete with previously unpublished fashion illustrations by McQueen himself, in addition to a mixture of exquisite catwalk and editorial fashion images, Alexander McQueen: The Life and the Legacy delivers a truly comprehensive, in-depth look at the most provocative designer of a generation.

Judith Watt also dedicated a chapter to Sarah Burton, who was the right hand McQueen and is now the creative director of his ongoing label.
The intro of the book is written by fashion icon and good friend of McQueen.
Well, this book deserves a good place on your bookshelf.
