"Visionaire first featured the designs of Lee Alexander McQueen in 1996. Since that time, he has been a continuous inspiration and a presence in Visionaire. McQueen's special commissions are among our most treasured contributions. His daring designs and challenging ideas of fashion have consistently excited and provoked us. In 2003, McQueen came to our soho office and gallery to discuss collaborating on an issue of Visionaire...an issue that never came to be. This is our tribute to him.
