SHOCK TALK: As far as Alexander McQueen is concerned, the New York fashion industry consists of “200 Anna Suis and that guy Todd Oldham.” So McQueen is going to do his best to give New York what he thinks is a much-needed wakeup call on Tuesday night with a film about his collection. The screening is part of a party being held by In the Mix to celebrate the opening of its new West Broadway offices. The 25-year-old London designer, who has worked for Koji Tatsuno and Romeo Gigli, caught the attention of editors at his second show this February. He calls his look “classic tailoring with a hint of perversity,” and says, “I want to give New York a kick up the ass, really. I’m trying to break down the boundaries of tailoring and fabric, and the film is going to show people things that aren’t what they like to see.”
Such as? “Transvestites, just as they are — not all dressed up. And things that inspire me, like old Man Ray or Mary Ellen Mark photos. It’s done in a way that will shock people.”
