The youngest of six children, Lee Alexander McQueen was expected to become a plumber, a bricklayer or possibly a cab driver like his father. Instead, McQueen’s fierce romanticism and punk poetry helped create 1990s-era ‘Cool Britannia’. For perhaps the first time since the Swinging Sixties, a lad from the East End of London could — and did — become one of the most original and influential artists of the 20th Century.
Through exclusive interviews with McQueen’s closest friends and family and never-before-seen archives, McQueen reveals an unmatched talent who expressed his darkest fantasies and greatest ambitions through his revolutionary designs and runway shows.
Thanks to Madman Entertainment, we are giving you the chance to win an in-season double pass to McQueen, a thrilling rag to riches portrait of a complex artistic genius. In cinemas September 6.
