Nick Knight had an incredibly close working relationship with late designer Alexander McQueen. Thanks to Knight’s habit of filming his photography shoots, he’s been able to release a ton of archived behind-the-scenes material featuring the iconic designer, including unseen interviews and a fashion tribute film titled To Lee, With Love, Nick. Now, Knight has released unreleased footage that was shot for that film in a short but transfixing video.
The video comes as the final days of the McQueen exhibit “Savage Beauty” at London’s Victoria & Albert museum wind down. The film gives new dimension to some of the most iconic designs created during McQueen’s lifetime, like the designer’s duck feather dress from 2009’s Horn of Plenty collection, which is shot here in breathtaking motion. The designs were selected by current Alexander McQueen director Sarah Burton.
