published on 31 July 2020

An edit of unforgettable moments from Alexander McQueen's legendary runway shows in London, New York and Paris from 1998-2003. Including the controversial ‘Highland Rape’ collection which showcased McQueen's trademark bumster trousers and ‘Voss’, which opened on models in a glass cube reminiscent of a psychiatric ward and closed on writer Michelle Olley reclining nude whilst attached to a breathing tube surrounded by circling moths, here are the moments which defined McQueen as both provocateur and definer of beauty.
