Illustrating McQueen

Launched on 12 March 2015

This collection of specially commissioned illustrations pays homage to a selection of Alexander McQueen's most pivotal designs. SHOWstudio has established a community of fashion illustrators and artists that work in a variety of mediums to re-interpret garments in new and imaginative guises. For the occasion of the Savage Beauty exhibition at the V&A and the Nick Knight & Alexander McQueen exhibition at SHOWstudio, each of these artists have created an artwork that operates as an ode to an important McQueen design. These illustrations were then made available to purchase from SHOWstudio Shop.
