Alexander McQueen Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Alexander McQueen brand was founded by designer Alexander McQueen in 1992. The house's early collections developed its reputation for controversy and shock tactics (earning the title "l'enfant terrible" and "the hooligan of English fashion"), with trousers aptly named "bumsters" and a collection entitled Highland Rape. Alexander McQueen staged lavish and unconventional runway shows, such as a recreation of a shipwreck for his Spring 2003 collection, Spring 2005's human chess game, and the Fall 2006 show, Widows of Culloden, which featured a life-sized hologram of supermodel Kate Moss dressed in yards of rippling fabric. In total, McQueen designed 36 collections for his London label, including his MA graduate collection.
Camille Heimbrod of IBT compiled some of the worst critics to Kate Middleton who recently wear a dress from Alexander McQueen:
Kate Middleton was recently criticized for wearing a blue Alexander McQueen dress at the state banquet at the Buckingham Palace on Tuesday night.
Several royal fans took their thoughts to Twitter regarding Middleton’s dress and said that it looked as though her attire came from the 1980s era. At least one fan said that the Duchess of Cambridge’s attire was the worst dress she has ever seen.
“Kate is so much prettier than that dress. That dress looks like a bad prom dress,” another fan tweeted (via Daily Star).
“I [expletive] love Kate and 90% of her wardrobe, but this is a firm no from me. I swear I had a party dress that looked like this in 1989,” another person commented.
“Tata dress is maybe the worst dress Kate ever wore, it’s shocking actually. She really needs a fashion makeover,” another person wrote.
Middleton’s designer dress featured ruffles from the sleeves down to the bottom. The mom of three accentuated her look with Princess Diana’s favorite Lover’s Knot tiara.
“Who even needs to iron these days?” he tweeted.
“So glad to see Kate wearing the Royal Family Order of the Queen for the first time but sorry really not likely the dress at all,” one person tweeted.
In related news, some royal fans compared Middleton’s recent fashion to Meghan Markle and Princess Diana. One fan claimed that Markle won’t ever wear what Middleton wore to the state banquet. “Everyone knows I know nothing about clothing or fashion but when I first saw Duchess Kate’s stunning gown this evening I actually thought it might be a dress that once belonged to Princess Diana – it has that look about it. No?” one fan commented (via Daily Star).
Another person tweeted, “It makes me wonder if Kate said to Sarah Burton, ‘make me something that looks like a dress my mother-in-law would have worn.”
Corporate (Former Employee) says"I worked in the London corporate office for a while and it was the worst place I have ever worked. Don't get sucked in by the brand name and benefits as you will regret it."
Draper/Creative pattern cutter (Former Employee) says"Creatively this establishment is a dream. Draping on the stand and creating designs based on photographs and sketches was an amazing experience. I learned that I'm a very good draper if allowed the time to do my job effectively. However, the team is badly managed as the line manager has poor management skills, is a control freak and demands complete control. A manager is supposed to put ego aside and create a culture that's nurturing and supportive. It's a shame that this establishment continues to operate such a toxic environment considering what happened to the founder. Cons: Poor management"

Lena Dawoud says"Why the hell are you not getting back to me about my returning? I wanted to return my shoes, because the size was to big and order another one in a smaller size, so I could wear them for christmas. It’s been a long since I returned my shoes and I still has not heard anything from you. This is such a bad costumer service. I can not believe this behavior from such a big brand. I will never order from you again, and if I don’t get my money back, I will sue you for fraud. I’m in chok. And also your phone hours and live chat is such a joke, because none of you answers."
