This Alexander McQueen Tribute By Nick Knight Is Hypnotizing

The Victoria and Albert Museum will be closing curtains on its Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit, which had come to London after its previous run at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. As a final celebration, photographer Nick Knight and his team created a beautifully haunting film compiled of previously unseen footage of McQueen’s most famous designs.


The mesmerizing video, via Dazed, includes footage from 2010, before the designer committed suicide in February of that year. Knight had met McQueen in the mid-nineties and the two became close collaborators.

Sarah Burton, McQueen’s creative director, chose some of the designer’s most well-known work to be featured in the video, including the glorious duck-feather raven dress from 2009’s Horn of Plenty show. Watch in awe.
