Depression is an issue that many people of all ages struggle with every day and has become a serious issue especially within the outcast community. Alexander McQueen was a fashion designer that suffered with serious depression which led him so far to hang himself in his wardrobe. For someone that would seem to have had everything his heart could desire to end it all on a whim was heartbreaking. For my show I am celebrating the life of Alexander McQueen and all that he was as an artist, designer, and human being. I hope to inspire people that suffer from depression and give them an alternative way to cope with this disease. This is a series of images inspired by the creativity that flowed through Alexander McQueen with my own style mixed within. Alexander was known for producing gothic and provocative fashion pieces that each made a bold statement on the runway. I take inspiration from this to create my gothic series of images.
