A revealing and charming homage to one of the UKs most avant-garde fashion designers who's heart belonged to the Hebrides of Scotland.
Told by renowned and stylish broadcaster Cathy MacDonald, herself a self confessed devotee to McQueen, this programme will reveal the magnitude of influence his Scottish roots had on this creative genius’ work.
London-born fashion designer Alexander McQueen who often used tartan in his garments was found dead at his home in 2010. This programme looks at the late designer’s life and how his Scottish/Skye connections influenced his work. “Highland Rape” and “Widows of Culloden”, two of McQueen’s most controversial autumn/winter collections were influenced by the characters and events of the Jacobite rising in 1746.
