The last thing I worked on there was sewing the skirt of this insane dress. He came up behind me and said something complimentary and I remember my foot hitting the machine pedal in shock and almost ruining the thing!
So Sad. Interned with McQueen years back. He was a strange mix of awkward, shy and arrogant. Such a talent. It was amazing watching him work. His studio is down the road from my flat and I saw him not so long ago. Bummed.
Plus, he still owes me a pack from of Marloboro Lights from after the S/S 2003 show. I'll let you off dude. R.I.P.
