Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty
The first collection, 1992
In 1992, McQueen's graduate collection from London's Central Saint Martins College so impressed fashion editor and stylist Isabella Blow that she purchased all his pieces for £5,000. This satin coat from the collection, called Jack the Ripper Stalks His Victim, was inspired by the Victorian era, which fascinated McQueen for its "austerity, severity (and) melancholy."
