Pronounced: Al-ex-AHN-der Mac-KWEEN
Born March 17, 1969, in London, McQueen isn’t your typical designer: shaved head, tattoos, and risque-yet-fun catwalk shows. He’s known for his master tailoring and in 2001 became the chief designer for Givenchy. McQueen’s famous “bumster” trousers helped him receive the British Designer of the Year award in 1996. He is known for his liberal and non-traditional use of plaid and recently premiered a limited edition line at Target.
