The unpolished side of fashion
Alexander McQueen shocked the fashion world with his contorted designs and gothic flair and he made us ask ourselves questions of fashion that had never been asked before.
Now, in a most unique exhibition, the artist Nick Waplington will finally show his photographs at Tate Britain in the show titled Nick Waplington/Alexander McQueen: Working Process. His pictures capture the creative journey of McQueen’s final Autumn/Winter collection, Horn of Plenty in 2009, providing a rare behind-the-scenes look into one of fashion’s most famous designers.
The candid images of McQueen’s working process reveal a raw and often hidden side of the fashion world. These are juxtaposed with photographs of recycling plants and landfills to create a commentary on destruction and creative renewal – themes at the heart of the Horn of Plenty collection.
See the show on now at Tate Britain until May 17th.
