Alexander McQueen's Custom Order Business Is Doing Really Well

Alexander McQueen's Custom Order Business Is Doing Really Well

>> According to Alexander McQueen CEO Jonathan Akeroyd, the label is doing significant business in custom-made clothes, and for that reason, he's looking into leasing some extra space to accommodate: “We’ve been discussing it for a number of months because the demand is so strong.” McQueen custom dresses are easily in the $30,000 range; Akeroyd says some of the orders have been for archival pieces and others are for Sarah Burton's Spring 2011 collection, but the custom business on a whole is profitable. Also: when the Costume Institute Gala rolls around in May, keep your eyes peeled — two dresses from McQueen's final collection just arrived at the label's Manhattan boutique for customers to wear to the event.
