For the past several months, London’s Victoria & Albert Museum has hosted the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition, a tribute to the visionary British designer’s most notable works.
McQueen had a profound impact on popular culture, and his patrons included style icons from Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Kidman to Rihanna, while Björk and Lady Gaga were often seen in his designs.
As the exhibition prepares to close its doors and head to New York, photographer Nick Knight compiled the below, haunting video, incorporating hitherto unseen footage of his most famous works, like his 2009 Horn Of Plenty duck feather dress.
Knight and McQueen had been close friends and collaborators since the mid-1990s, and the footage in the video spans a period to 2010, when the designer took his own life.
Vale Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969-2010.
