Lee McQueen’s nephew Gary James McQueen launches a scarf collection

Gary James McQueen, the nephew of the late Lee McQueen, is launching his own made-to-order silk printed scarves line, with his debut collection paying tribute to his uncle.

His inaugural collection will debut as part of the British Style Collective presented by The Clothes Show in Liverpool next month, where the collection of made-to-order scarves will be showcased alongside an artistic installation featuring his iconic Chrome Skull artwork.

In the interview, McQueen also reveals the pressures he saw Lee under has shaped the way he now works adding: “I’d like to grow the business slowly that’s why my scarves are made-to-order. It’s slow fashion. I saw the pressure that Lee was under and it’s not for me.”

As well as showcasing his designs at the British Style Collective, McQueen will also be talking about his career and revealing the inspiration behind his new collection in conversation with Caryn Franklin on July 8 and 9 at St George’s Hall in Liverpool.
