The first trailer for the highly anticipated Alexander McQueen documentary is finally here, and boy is it epic. Directed and produced by Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui, the documentary follows the journey of McQueen, one of the most influential and outlandish designers in modern recollection. The new film will feature behind-the-scenes footage, home movies, and interviews with those closest to the British designer, and promises to offer insight into McQueen's spectacular life and career. With a trailer as equally inspiring and boundary-pushing as the designer himself, McQueen is sure to be the highlight of the Tribeca Film Festival.

In a synopsis for the film, Tribeca Film Festival describes the documentary as a "vivid portrait of the tortured but inspired auteur’s work and persona." The film also promises to touch on the designer's relationship with his mentor and muse, Isabella Blow, who shaped his career immensely. The trailer mirrors McQueen's dark alternative aesthetic, including clips from his theatrical runway shows and "controversial and confrontational" designs, as TFF describes them. McQueen premieres at the festival on April 22 ahead of a limited release in June.
