Alexander McQueen Interview from SHOWstudio on Vimeo.

Here’s a fascinating interview with the late designer Alexander McQueen about the unfortunate elitism of fashion, and the way that fashion has become part of celebrity culture as a form of entertainment and fantasy, which we all need in these times.

“I don’t think it makes sense to play safe in these times. The world needs fantasy, not reality. We have enough reality today,”  he says.

He also discusses his alleged obsession with death.
