New Alexander McQueen fashion film from ShowStudio

Prompted by Savage Beauty, the recently closed block-busting retrospective of work by Alexander McQueen, at the Victoria & Albert Museum London, the British fashion filmmaker and photographer Nick Knight and his SHOWstudio team have made a short film from previously unused and unseen footage from Knight’s various collaborations with the designer.

The video entitled, Lee Alexander McQueen, 1969–2010 (Fashion Film – Nick Knight/Edward Enninful/Alexander McQueen), was compiled and created with SHOWstudio collaborators Younji Ku and Jon Emmony, and features footage shot in 2010 for the tribute film, To Lee, With Love, Nick which displays some of McQueen’s most celebrated designs, chosen by Sarah Burton and stylist Edward Enninful, set in “breathtaking motion” to the accompaniment the Brandenburg Concerto No2 (BWV 1047) by Bach, (with additional ambient sound by Younji Ku).

The film is a companion piece to SHOWstudio’s two other videos about McQueen – Unseen McQueen and Black: 2015 projects.

Savage Beauty, which closed last week, was the V&A‘s most popular exhibit ever with 493,043 tickets sold.
