The Bridegroom Stripped Bare, Alexander McQueen

The Bridegroom Stripped Bare offers a delightful and rare glimpse of Alexander McQueen performing a design metamorphosis. The bridegroom is transfigured into the bride in a whirlwind of gaffer tape, glitter and gloss paint. The finale piece to a series of transformations that happened at SHOWStudio in July 2002, the performance was originally broadcast live via webcam. I saw this film only a few months ago at SHOWstudio’s Fashion Revolution exhibition at Somerset House, and as one of the introductory pieces to the show, found it utterly mesmerising and astonishing.

To the memory of Alexander McQueen.
