  • I was never a big networker, but I was a spin doctor, all those shock shows, that's how I got my first backers. But fashion's a scary industry to be in, especially if you've not grown up with it.

    "God save McQueen" by Polly Vernon, February 9, 2003.
  • For me, what I do is an artistic expression which is channeled through me. Fashion is just the medium.

  • I'm not interested in being liked.

  • It's a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It's all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.

    Interview with Amy Odell, February 5, 2009.
  • I like the concept of dressing people. I used to not care whether people bought the clothes or not, but I kind of like it now. I wouldn't label that commercialism; it's more like I do this work because I want people to wear it.

    "The Real McQueen" by Susannah Frankel, April 1, 2007.
  • I come from a different era and I design clothes for our era. I think of people I want to dress when I design.

    "Remembering Alexander McQueen". Interview with Karl Plewka, April 1997.
  • Give me time and I'll give you a revolution.

  • I always wanted to be a designer. I read books on fashion from the age of 12.

  • I feel more Scottish than Norman.

    "'Meeting the Queen was like falling in love'". Interview with Joyce McQueen, April 20, 2004.
  • If you're lucky enough to use something you see in a dream, it is purely original. It's not in the world - it's in your head. I think that is amazing.

  • As a designer, you've always got to push yourself forward; you've always got to keep up with the trends or make your own trends. That's what I do.

    "The Real McQueen" by Susannah Frankel, April 1, 2007.
  • Let me not forget the use of my own hands, that of a craftsman with eyes... that reflect the technology around me.

  • It is important to look at death because it is a part of life. It is a sad thing, melancholy but romantic at the same time. It is the end of a cycle - everything has to end. The cycle of life is positive because it gives room for new things.

  • I'm not big on women looking naive.

  • Really, what I'm aiming for is world domination!

  • There has to be a balance between your mental satisfaction and the financial needs of your company.

    "Alexander McQueen obituary" by Imogen Fox, February 11, 2010.
  • I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern, very now - no one wears head-to-toe designer anymore.

    Interview with Amy Odell, February 5, 2009.
  • Menswear is about subtlety. It's about good style and good taste.

  • The world needs fantasy, not reality. We have enough reality today

  • Style is not about the clothes, it's about the individual

  • People find my things sometimes aggressive. But I don't see it as aggressive. I see it as romantic, dealing with a dark side of personality.

  • If you ask any lady they want to be taller, they want to be slimmer, you know, and they want a waist. I'm not here to make people look like a sack of potatoes.

  • I think there has to be an underlying sexuality. There has to be a perverseness to the clothes. There is a hidden agenda in the fragility of romance. It's like a Story of O. I am not big on women looking naive. There has to be a sinister aspect, whether it's melancholy of sadomasochist. I think everyone has a deep sexuality, and sometimes it's good to use a little of it-and sometimes a lot of it-like a masquerade.

  • I am a melancholy type of person.

  • Some designers are so airy-fairy people can't connect with them. I hope people can relate to me, to a normal person who just happens to be a fashion designer, that people can take me as they find me. It's not the designer's job to care about what people think. Whatever else I've done, I've never tried to be something that I'm not.

  • When I'm dead and gone, people will know that the twenty-first century was started by Alexander McQueen.

    "Dressed To Thrill" by Judith Thurman, May 16, 2011.
  • Clothes and jewellery should be startling, individual.

  • There is no better designer then nature

  • I think I should be a president. President of the United States.

    "God save McQueen" by Polly Vernon, February 9, 2003.
  • Life to me is a bit of a (Brothers) Grimm fairy tale.
