First off, did you experience any technical difficulties watching McQueen? That was our big issue.
The connection was totally gone on my laptop. I got the interview and first thirty percent [of the runway show]. I wanted to see it all but couldn’t!

What do you think will be the impact?
When Alexander McQueen said he wanted to bring the brand directly to his audience and not be edited down, that was powerful stuff. It was a powerful breaking down of walls. He doesn’t want to be romanticized or glamorized in tabloids or the press; he wants to be heard. He’s saying, ‘This is how I see my world, this is how this work happened and why.’
