Inferno: Alexander McQueen Book
Inferno: Alexander McQueen, designed and curated by Ollystudio is part of an overall project that has been two years in the making. This book features unique photographs, by Kent Baker, shot behind the scenes, with raw, unseen pictures of the designer, models and clothes. The fashion creatives who worked with McQueen to make the show such a success recall this pivotal time in the designer’s career and reflect on what made ‘Dante’ truly groundbreaking. The new imagery of clothes shown on the catwalk, created by Baker and Walker, gives insight into why this collection was so special.
London 1996: Alexander McQueen took over the Hawksmoor masterpiece Christ Church in London’s East End for what was quite possibly the greatest fashion show on earth. A candle-lit, cruciform catwalk with a backdrop of stained-glass windows set the tone for an extraordinary collection. Lace sat against chiffon and rubbed shoulders with couture and club-culture clothing and digital print. Dante was the seminal collection that would resonate throughout Alexander McQueen’s career.
