well I saw Mr McQueen at terminal 5 (where I work)
He came through the metal detector i was on.
'I did an internship with your company in may' I said
He just looked at me.
' I worked on the menswear bit' I said, hoping for some sort of acknowledgement.
'oh....right' he said... walking off
what a snobby knob! If i was him I'd acknowledge his intern ...maybe ask a question or even say 'thank you' or something. What a KNOB...
The above is his AW09/10 collection....the stupid A5 finger painting I was asked to create...and the first drawing I was ever asked to draw at Mcqueens. Ripping off someone elses work... If the guy who drew the 'duck tattoo' is out there... yes this does look like yours... yes
I did have to copy it, but change it into an eagle.
take a look at his website for more unimaginative- ripped off rubbish that has no thought or concept to...
'this season we are going to rip off creative people.... Andy Warhol, Picasso, Cy Twombly...were going to rip off their artistic style and the way they dress'
and just think about the poor interns who worked day and night with no creative input into what they were working on...just unpaid monkeys.
the average price for one of these shirts £300
the average intern spends 3months at McQueens working 13hours a day.
remember that when you buy designer.
