Alexander McQueen is dead, long live the McQueen

From Savage Beauty:

pg 17
“As a human being, he was far more complex, elusive and indeed more magical than any reductive media incarnation.”

pg 18
“…Rather than waiting for someone to disappoint he provokes them into a hostile reaction which confirms his worst suspicions and justifies his own behavior.”

pg 19
“It had very little to do with the clothes and more to do with him as a person. And it’s fundamentally true of anybody. Any interest in the clothes is secondary to the interest in a designer. You need to know you’re a good designer as well though…”

pg 20
“We’re not talking about models’ personal feelings here we’re talking about mine. It’s all about the way I feel about my life.”

pg 26
“He always needed to see how far he could push things, how far he could push himself and everyone who worked with him.”

pg 30
“You’ve got to learn the rules to break them. That’s what I’m here for, to demolish the rules but to keep the tradition.”

pg 74
“There’s blood beneath every layer of skin.”
