More about Alexander McQueen Shoes
In 2005 a collaboration was formed which resulted in the Puma Alexandra Mcqueen shoes. The current Alexandra Mcqueen shoes collection includes beautiful boots, heels, platforms and sandals. There is a troubled history behind Alexander McQueens success story. His career as a fashion designer began when he chose to design and make dresses for his sisters when their family was struggling to make ends meet. He started off as an apprentice in 1990, when he honed his skills with Anderson & Shepard and Gieves & Hawkes. It is here where he mastered the six indispensable techniques of creative pattern cutting that he still translates into all of his creations.
Things began to look up when he was made the Creative Director at Givenchy in 1996. Though he himself detested his first collection, McQueen soon came to be known for his abstract and totally unconventional runway shows. He actually had a mental asylum theme for one of them.
He, however, ended his tryst with Givenchy in 2001 and sought to break free into his own world of creative and original designing. He sold half of his design company to Gucci, and went on to make his own unrestricted designer line.
Most popular for his extraordinary shoe designs for women, Alexander Mcqueen Shoes have become a dominant brand name in the footwear business, competing with the likes of none other than Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin.
