Buried at the end of Times critic Cathy Horyn's recent column on the future of fashion was a very interesting tidbit about the future of the Alexander McQueen store in the Meatpacking District. Horyn writes that the company has been doing quite well with custom-made clothes—so well, in fact, that they're hoping to expand into another NYC location. Mcqueen CEO Jonathan Akeroyd told her that the business is turning a profit, so they're looking into leasing more space. And with dresses going for at least $30,000 a pop, they can probably afford something else in the neighborhood.
