Alexander McQueen’s fashion legacy lives on in Nick Knight’s short film. The much raved about, must-visit fashion exhibition the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty showcased at the London’s Victoria & Albert Museum has come to a close.
Demand was so high that the museum stayed open through the night for the final two weekends of the show. The exhibition has become the most popular show ever staged at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, selling over 480,000 tickets during its 21-week run.
As a closing SHOWstudio presents a tribute film titled Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969-2010. Sparked by the arrival of the exhibition in London earlier this year, Nick Knight and the SHOWstudio team set about to opening up his extensive film archive, searching for unseen footage from his collaborations with Alexander McQueen.
If you’ve missed out on the exhibition and the detail of McQueen’s iconic fashion pieces that detailed the late designer’s life, Nick Knight’s film site Showstudio gives you an inside look at what the exhibition was like.
Using archival images of Alexander’s creations, Nick teams up with filmmaker Younji Ku and art director Jon Emmony to produce a montage for the short entitled ‘Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969 – 2010’.
The film comes in addition to another project called Unseen McQueen where SHOWStudio reveals exclusive footages and interviews about the late designer.
Nick Knight is known for his innovative fashion film and photography, and has worked on campaigns for fashion houses including Christian Dior, Lancôme, Swarovski, Levi Strauss, Calvin Klein and Yves Saint Laurent.
