A job tailoring men's suits on Savile Row introduced a working-class lad from East London to the world of fashion. For Lee Alexander McQueen, a spark was struck, resulting in the rise of one of the most famous and provocative designers of the 21st century. McQueen took to fashion with a passion that burned bright and hot; his success was fueled by raw talent, enabled by money and drugs, before he inevitably, tragically burned out. The legendary couturier’s story is vividly brought to life via rare archival footage and revealing interviews with his inner circle in this lauded Hot Docs hit from directors Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui.
