The son of a London cab driver and a school teacher, Alexander "Lee" McQueen grew up in Stratford, East London. After dropping out of school with one O level at the age of 16, he perfected his tailoring skills on Savile Row, graduated with an MA in fashion design from Central Saint Martins and went on to embark on a career as one of the most innovative and talented designers of all time.
