In McQueen’s Words

“My designing is done mainly during fittings. I change the cut.”

Self Service, Spring/Summer 2002

“[Through cutting, I try] to draw attention to our unrelenting desire for perfection. The body parts that I focus on change depending on the inspirations and references for the collection and what silhouettes they demand.”

Muse, December 2008
