Can We Handle The Truth!? NY Times T Magazine editor, Stefano Tonchi:
“I think it is just the tip of the iceberg...
We all know that this is a very critical moment in fashion, and that basically he is the first victim of what is a conflict between creativity and business.
Today to be a fashion designer, you have to be a superman or superwoman. You have to have nerves of steel. You have to be so strong. And if you are a little bit weak, if you have psychological problems or weakness, you end up like him [McQueen].
Now you have to be a business manager, a marketer. It’s, what? Eight, ten, fifteen collections a year. Men’s, women’s, couture, diffusion. Then they want accessories. Then they want watches. Then they want jewelry. It’s a machine, and I think that killed him.”
We cannot look at the poor Alexander McQueen, abused child or abuser of substance,... I think you have to put it in a larger context in terms of the fashion system. He’s just one of the little cogs that got squeezed.”
