 Yesterday I was privileged enough to be selected to be apart of the Alexander McQueen tribute film directed by Nick Knight. It is a short film, which will be roughly 6 minutes long according to Knight, and the story depicts McQueen’s turbulent but brilliant life through the portrayal of ascendancy and descent through the imagery of a journey through Heaven and Hell. One of McQueen’s dying wishes was to work with a group of all black models for a show and this vision is now being brought to life to honor one of the greatest designers of our time. This film is also special because it contains some if his last original creations which after this will no longer be able to be worn as they will be sent to the Met Museum in New York. These include his infamous shoes and feather detailed gowns.
The short film is scheduled to be release on the 7th of December at the British Fashion Awards at the Savoy Theatre to commemorate one of the most iconic creators of not just the British fashion industry but the world. I cannot wait to see the finished product and I believe that it will be a true reflection of the vibrant yet tragic life of the great Alexander McQueen.
