An Alexander McQueen Biopic Is in the Works

Alexander McQueen's life and death is coming to big screen. Andre Haigh is set to direct biopic based on the life of the designer, his sudden rise in the fashion industry and suicide death at the age of 40.


Born in the East End and the son of a taxi driver, Alexander McQueen was the quintessential bad boy made good. He had brains and brawn, having survived over ten years as a solo designer and being brought into the Gucci Group stable, which bought a 51 per cent stake in his company 2002. In 2008, his company not only turned a profit but was also opening new stores from LA to Beirut. He was awarded the coveted Designer of the Year Award at the British Fashion Awards four times.

Give me time and I’ll give you a revolution.
