Alexander McQueen at Harvey Nichols
The global fashion frenzy surrounding the house of McQueen – triggered by Kate Middleton’s bridal gown at the British Royal Wedding last month – continues with the news that luxury London department store Harvey Nichols will be exhibiting a series of the designer’s creations. The showcase will run in conjunction with the retrospective of his work, Savage Beauty, currently on display at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met).
Featuring many intricate items that could not be exhibited at the Met due to strict US customs regulations, Harvey Nichols will transform its Knightsbridge windows with garments from collections from Spring/Summer 1999 to Autumn/Winter 2008. The series will include every fashionista's favourite: the white dress worn by model Shalom Harlow and spray-painted by robotic arms during McQueen's mould-breaking S/S 1999 catwalk show.
