Alexander McQueen was one of the most innovative designers of his generation and celebrated for his extraordinary creative talent. This spectacular exhibition is the only major retrospective of McQueen’s work to be presented in Europe and showcases the best of his creative output of womenswear from his 1992 Central Saint Martin’s postgraduate collection to his A/W 2010 collection which was unfinished at the time of his death.

Peter Lindbergh’s tribute to the late Editor-in-Cheif of Vogue Italia, Franca Sozzani. The film came out of working on a 90-page shoot for Vogue Italia, titled ‘Walking’, that Lindbergh shot around the streets of Manhattan.
Fashion is, by necessity, an obsession for Fausto Puglisi, who designs his own label. Here he waxes lyrical about the wonder of Italian craftsmanship – something he sees as intrinsically connected to Italian society. But it is all underpinned by the opening statement: “To be proud to be Italian means to go out and discover new things”. An attitude that took Puglisi to Berlin’s S&M scene and then back to Tuscany’s leatherworkers.
