Alexander McQueen Sales Up 1400 Percent

Posted by Alyssa on February 19th, 2010

Since the recent tragedy surrounding London’s design guru, AlexanderMcQueen, sales for the label have increased to 1400%. This is incredible due to the fact that in 2007, McQueen broke even and barely made any profit in 2008. Sadly, because of the recession, last year,  it lost money. It’s horrible to think that people start to pay attention to art only after misfortune. Although prices are still steep, customers are laying out the dough to be able to own a piece of fashion history.
