Launched on 21 July 2003

In a project conceived to celebrate Alexander McQueen's 2003 CBE award, the designer himself starred in a fashion film - illustrating a selection of showstoppers from his 2003 collections on camera in a process that revealed the formidable technique at their core. An essay by Susannah Frankel and a film charting the highlights of McQueen's performative catwalk shows further explore the creative magic of McQueen's true genius.
