Glitterati turn out for Alexander McQueen exhibition

By PA Reporter

An exhibition of candid photographs of late fashion designer Alexander McQueen's preparation for his final ever collection will be displayed at the Tate Britain.

Offering a unique glimpse into the fashion designer's world, the photos chronicle his sketching through to the production of the Paris catwalk show.

Around 100 large and small images, some never seen publicly, will be on display in the spring.

It is timed to coincide with the Victoria and Albert Museum's exhibition, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition.

Photographer Nick Waplington gained exclusive access to McQueen's studio during his Autumn/Winter collection, The Horn Of Plenty - the last collection before he died.

McQueen perceived The Horn Of Plenty as a retrospective of his fashion career which came to an untimely end in 2010.

The show featured recycled fabrics from his earlier collections, and elements from previous catwalks to make up the set.
