Fashion Statements (3) Alexander McQueen

Fashion Statesments, published in 2006 contains 44 interviews with leading designers, including this one with Alexander McQueen.  Interviewer: Do you get the feeling that the art and fashion worlds are growing nearer? McQueen: On my level yes, in a very signifcant way.  Interviewer: Is there a big difference between fashion design and art? McQueen: They are two different things: one is commercial, the other is esthetic.  Esthetic and business usually don't merge very well.  And in any case, in the art and fashion worlds this doesn't happen; they just become ideas.
