McQueen: The Trailer

Last week we brought you the teaser trailer of the new documentary film about Alexander McQueen. Now we have the first trailer of McQueen, directed by Ian Bonhôte and written by Peter Ettedgui, which takes a look at the inspiring, yet tortured, life and career of Alexander McQueen.

The documentary includes behind-the-scenes footage, unseen clips of the designer himself and many emotional and heartfelt interviews from his closet friends and family, including his sister Janet, his close friend Isabella Blow's widower Detmar Blow and assistant designer Sebastian Pons.

The movie looks at the conflict between the creativity and the commercial viability of his business, how to rose to fame, his humour & charm and how he fell into depression. It looks at his graduate collection from Central Saint Martins, his appointment at Givenchy in Paris, through to his final show.

McQueen premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last weekend ahead of its limited released in June, with a debut June 8 at London's Picturehouse Central.
