Alexander McQueen’s shocking runway collections and dark, sensual appeal earned him the nickname L’Enfant Terrible in the fashion industry. From the birth of his fashion career to his last show, this conceptual exhibition archives the work and achievements of McQueen. Integral to the McQueen culture is the juxtaposition between contrasting elements: fragility and strength, tradition and modernity, fluidity and severity.
An openly emotional and even passionate viewpoint is realized with a profound respect and influence for the arts and crafts tradition. McQueen’s collections combine an in-depth working knowledge of bespoke British tailoring, the fine workmanship of the French Haute Couture atelier and the impeccable finish of Italian manufacturing.
I do not take ownership of any images used from McQueen's fashion shows, collections, or branding. This exhibition is purely conceptual.
