Just 6 days before taking his own life Alexander McQueen did his last interview with Matches magazine. The full interview will be out in Matches magazine Spring/Summer issue. Here are some of the highlights:
If he had an hour of free time in London: "I'd head to the Natural History Museum!"
On when he is happiest: "When I'm just at home with my dogs."
On showing in Paris instead of London: "I love the heritage of the design houses and the fact that not just anyone can put on a show."
On growing up in fashion: "There has to be a balance between your mental satisfaction and the financial needs of your company. I always remember that it's the fantasy, the artistic side, that makes customers want to buy the straightforward black pants."
