NEXT TOP DESIGNER

The British designer is rumoured to take the reins of the label founded by Lee McQueen.


British designer Gareth Pugh, 28, is said to be the lead candidate in the search for a new creative director for Alexander McQueen, UK's Telegraph newspaper reports.


Launched by Lee McQueen as a student at Central Saint Martins College, the Alexander McQueen label is synonymous with cutting-edge high-end fashion. The industry mourned the loss of a true visionary when its founder was found dead in his London home on February 11.


Robert Polet, president and chief executive officer of Gucci Group which owns a 51 per cent stake in the Alexander McQueen brand, confirmed earlier this month that the label would continue, and unveil a collection at Paris Fashion Week. However, detail that in place of a parade, a presentation/memorial featuring the collection will be held on March 9 and 10 instead.
"We believe in the future of the brand," added Polet. "Lee was very proud of the people working in his company, and so am I."
Pugh, a designer also known for his unique, conceptual style, presented his autumn/winter 2010 collection at Paris Fashion Week on Friday, March 4.
