MCQUEEN BOOK SIGNING WITH KRISTIN KNOX
On Thursday 13th May between 6.30- 8pm, Kristin Knox a.k.a The Clothes Whisperer will be signing copies of her new book Alexander McQueen: Genius of a Generation at Material, Carnaby Street.
More than just a ready-to-wear designer, McQueen’s vision eclipsed the sphere of the fashion industry and reached into that of the artistic — his infamously over-the-top runway spectacles resembling a new kind of installation art more than a conventional catwalk show. More than just a visionary, McQueen’s exceptional tailoring skills allowed him to execute his avant-garde vision in a way that was both believable, accessible yet inconceivably beautiful. He was a friend to many in the industry and an inspiration to an entire generation of young designers and creatives.
Join Kristin Knox, international fashion blogger and journalist, at MATERIAL where she’ll be signing copies of her new book, Alexander McQueen: genius of a generation. A must-have buy for fashion lovers everywhere, and a beautiful keepsake, the book showcases the dramatic and spectacular work of this fantastic designer.
