Large format. Publisher's description: Alexander McQueen, the iconic designer whose untimely death in 2010 left the fashion world reeling and fans worldwide clamoring for more, fused immense creativity, audacity, and a hauntingly dark aesthetic sense into powerful, unforgettable imagery. The strange, singular beauty of his clothing was matched by the spectacle of his legendary fashion shows, which demonstrated his outstanding showmanship and consistently pushed the boundaries of runway events. Robert Fairer's photographs of McQueen's collections on the catwalk and backstage, at a time when few photographers were allowed access, offer a unique insight into the life and work of one of the world's most captivating fashion designers. This previously unpublished portfolio of Fairer's stunning, high-energy photographs captures the glamour, grit, and spirit that made the designer's flamboyant shows unique. A treasure-trove of inspiration, they make this publication a must-have reference for fashion and photography lovers alike. Introduced by a preface by Sally Singer, this superb book also contains an essay and texts by Claire Wilcox. Dynamic images of McQueen's collections, presented chronologically, portray behind-the-scenes moments that reveal stylists, models, hairdressers, makeup artists, and McQueen himself at their most candid and creative.
