15 Alexander McQueen Fashion Influences

By: Sandra Winn - Published:
British Designer Alexander McQueen has graced the pages of Trend Hunter quite often. But is it any wonder? His clothing styles range from exotic environmental couture to outlandish mankinis, and from Gothic to patriotic styles. Such a portfolio gives him the opportunity to appeal to a variety of tastes.

McQueen hasn’t just been featured for fashion brilliance though. The designer has also been amidst controversy. One of his runway models passed out from extremely tight attire. He also ruffled some human feathers by using ostrich feathers on wedding dresses. 

Lastly, Alexander McQueen often goes rogue by disregarding major fashion no-nos—like having his models wear socks with sandals.
