Fashion designer Alexander McQueen proved yet again that his shows are the hottest ticket at London Fashion Week, writes Melanie Rickey.

The 27 year old, tipped to be Givenchy's new designer, staged the kind of extrava- ganza exclusive to the London scene. McQueen's models, including Kate Moss and Jodie Kidd, walked through a pool of shallow water which doubled as a catwalk.

Long Nguyen, style director of US magazine Detour, believes the hype surrounding the designer is justified. "Designers like McQueen are fashion's thinkers. They break down old boundaries."
