It seems that both Hollywood and the public cannot get enough of Alexander Mcqueen. The late designer’s rags-to-riches story is now going to be the subject of a new film- a documentary. The film, as described, is about to narrate the story of “the working-class boy who rose from Savile Row tailor’s apprentice to become the most celebrated and controversial fashion designer in the world.”
It will be directed by Ian Bonhote and written by Peter Ettedgui. Ian Bonhote is famous for his films for Matthew Williamson and Hussein Chalayan, while his latest movie dedicated to the fashion industry named “La Lucha,” won multiple awards at several film festivals.
“I moved to London from Paris in the Nineties much in part because of McQueen. His sense of style became synonymous with the city’s raw energy and edginess, and I know of no other contemporary designer to ignite such an immediate visceral response from an audience,” said the director.
“McQueen” is set to launch in theaters at the end of this year.
