Zitat des Tages von Alexander McQueen:
I have been skiing since I was in school, but I'm not great. I am never going to break an Olympic record, I just want to go down the hills, on red or blue runs, but not... black.
You can get insular with fashion.
I don't want to be too proud, but I have a good personal style.
Really, what I'm aiming for is world domination!
Sting's my ideal man, because he's a real man.
Youth culture now really looks back and embraces the past, but keeps it contemporary but not sticking to one particular style.
I come from a different era and I design clothes for our era. I think of people I want to dress when I design.
For a long time I was looking for my perfect equilibrium, my mojo. And now I think I'm getting there: I've found my customer, my silhouette, my cut.
British fashion is self confident and fearless. It refuses to bow to commerce, thus generating a constant flow of new ideas whilst drawing in British heritage.
I like the idea of infiltrating an area that is not really exposed to me or my work.
I never look at other people's work. My mind has to be completely focused on my own illusions.
I want to empower women. I want people to be afraid of the women I dress.
I find it grotesque when clothes hit you in the face and there's no room for fault. But I don't expect to turn things around all by myself. I'm not a saint.
My relationships with producers or photographers - these are relationships that took years.
It's a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It's all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.
I just want to be a wallflower. Nondescript. Just not anything. I don't want to see me.
You can hide so much behind theatrics, and I don't need to do that any more.
I'm mad in the front of my mind, but business-minded in the back.
When a woman gets dressed up to go out at night, she wants to give 50% away, and hold the rest back. If you're an open book, there's no allure.
Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment.
There is a hidden agenda in the fragility of romance.
Menswear is about subtlety. It's about good style and good taste.
The turnover of fashion is just so quick and so throwaway, and I think that is a big part of the problem. There is no longevity.
Some couture collections have everything including the kitchen sink! Everything gets thrown on to make it look expensive. I find it grotesque when clothes hit you in the face and there's no room for fault. But I don't expect to turn things around all by myself. I'm not a saint.
It's not my vision when I cover a woman's face with a chador. I got the idea from a 'National Geographic' photo. I'm just showing their plight in the world.
I'm not big on women looking naive.
You can only go forward by making mistakes.
I feel more Scottish than Norman.
I want to empower women.
When I'm dead and gone, people will know that the twenty-first century was started by Alexander McQueen.
It's usually only the intellectual ones who understand what's going on in what I do.
Rap music's been around for too long now to be inspirational. The words are, but the music isn't.
Clothes and jewellery should be startling, individual. When you see a woman in my clothes, you want to know more about them. To me, that is what distinguishes good designers from bad designers.
Give me time and I'll give you a revolution.
I hate it when people romanticize Scotland.
I work with people I admire and respect. It's never because of who they are.
