Fab Bag Finds: Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen

It's no secret that I love Alexander McQueen. His reputation for pushing boundaries and setting trends is legendary.

McQueen's shows were not to be missed. His imagination and ability to take detailing to another level was amazing. He made tartan prints hot and then introduced his trendsetting prints (which I like to call "psychedelic bug on acid") in the Spring 2010 Plato's Atlantis Collection. SHOWstudio, the website that was hosting the live stream of the show, crashed.

People with standing tickets to the show were unable to get in. The groundbreaking digital prints from that collection are still emulated today.
