Today we are launching the next segment of Subjective, a series of interviews conducted by Nick Knight to unravel the history of contemporary fashion photography from the perspective of models. This week’s interview is with Erin O’Connor, who sits down with Knight to discuss walking for Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer 2001 collection, entitled Voss.
Right before she went out, McQueen told O’Connor to rip apart her dress, resulting in an iconic clip: ‘I was worried that it looked like I was victimised, and actually, it was the complete opposite. It was stripping away the pain, and the armour, and going ‘Here I am’. He pushed me, and I’m glad’.
Watch this candid interview now, and stay tuned for more, rare Subjective interviews!
