When Alexander McQueen abruptly passed away in 2010, the fashion industry came to a complete stop for a brief moment. The British fashion designer was known for his outstanding rebellion, always showcasing collections with innovative techniques and technology, bringing drama and a sense of fantasy to the catwalk. McQueen was the chief designer at Givenchy from 1996 to 2001, and later founded his own eponymous label, Alexander McQueen, which earned him four British Designer of the Year awards, as well as the CFDA International Designer of the Year award in 2003. His tragic death came after the designer expressed his struggle with mental health issues and drug problems, when the designer decided to take his own life.

Now, Bleecker Street has revealed the first teaser of the new documentary McQueen. The film is set to be “a personal look at the extraordinary life, career and artistry of Alexander McQueen,” and will feature interviews and comments from some of his closest friends and family, as well as recovered archives, visuals and other mind-blowing creations from the celebrated designer. “McQueen is an authentic celebration and thrilling portrait of an inspired yet tortured fashion visionary,” states Bleecker Street, making us long to see the full film directed by Ian Bonhôte and co-directed/written by Peter Ettedgui

Watch the teaser for McQueen in the gallery above, and stay tuned as the film is set to debut at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 22 before coming to Picturehouse Central in London on June 8.
