The Alexander McQueen fashion house was founded by the late luxury fashion designer Alexander McQueen. The brand quickly became notorious for its controversial style, including the famous “bumster” hipsters, trousers so low that they left little to the imagination.
In July 2006, the company launched its McQ line, a more realistically priced diffusion of the Alexander McQueen fashion house, bringing the style, daringness and notoriety of the McQueen brand to the masses.
For the first time since the McQ line was launched, the brand will be presented at the London Fashion Week in February, exhibiting its autumn/winter 2012/2014 collection to the highly anticipated London Fashion Week catwalk.
The catwalk show will preview a snippet of what will be on sale in the first McQ store which will be opening in London sometime in the spring. The, some may argue, too long in coming store is going to be located in an impressive Georgian townhouse at 14 Dover Street in west London. The four-storey store will consist of 273 square meters of retailing heaven and will be the McQ’s first flagship store, offering both menswear, ladieswear and accessories.
Another famous name to be presented in the February London Fashion Week 2012 is Stella McCartney, who will be hosting a special fashion presentation on the evening of February 18, 2012.
As well as being announced as Creative Director for the Adidas Team GB for this summer’s Olympic Games, Ms McCartney will also be launching the “World of Stella” range at Selfridges on Oxford Road.
The “World of Stella” range will run from January 26 until February 14, 2012 and will include the designer’s new fragrance, various accessories, children’s clothing and lingerie.
2012 certainly looks set to be a fashionista bonanza in the capital ahead of the forthcoming Olympics.
