Lee Alexander McQueen (17 March 1969 – 11 February 2010) was a British fashion designer and couturier best known for his in-depth knowledge of bespoke British tailoring, his tendency to juxtapose strength with fragility in his collections, as well as the emotional power and raw energy of his provocative fashion shows. He is also known for having worked as chief designer at Givenchy from 1996 to 2001 and for founding his own Alexander McQueen label.
Born in 1914 in France, Pierre Blamain was a fashion designer renowned for sophistication and an unique concept of elegance. He once said that “tailoring is the architecture of movement”. His clientele consists of royalty and film stars, and a fashion hallmark recognized throughout the world. With the disappearance of Pierre Balmain in 1982, the torch was passed to Erik Mortensen - his personal assistant since 1951 and his closest colaborator - who maintained the traditions of the House while developing and updating styles and designs in the spirit of its founder.
