Knight To Debut McQueen Film At Tomorrow’s British Fashion Awards


At tomorrow’s British Fashion Awards, Alexander McQueen will be presented with a posthumous award for Outstanding Achievement. The late designer is due for a retrospective at the Met’s Costume Institute next year, but before his key pieces are spirited away for the museum and, later the archive, they’ve been placed into the capable hands of SHOWstudio’s Nick Knight. The godfather of fashion film has created a short, scored by Björk (who also sang at McQueen’s London memorial), featuring McQueen’s work, which will screen at tomorrow’s awards ceremony as well as on “It is being styled by Edward Enninful and will feature black models only,” Knight told “We felt it was important to have the clothes featured one last time on flesh and blood before the museum takes them away.” Of course, this was a work project that came with a lot of memories: “I worked a lot with McQueen, so, yes, it is an emotional experience. But I hope this film will play proper homage to his career, and the absolute genius he was.”
