Nick Knight releases previously unseen Alexander McQueen image starring Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell
Taken from the 2004 'American Express: McQueen Black Event'
As all eyes are on the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty retrospective, which is currently being exhibited at the V&A in London, photographer Nick Knight, who worked closely with McQueen since the 90's, has released never before seen images captured in 2004.
Knight has created a series of four tableauxs composed of his photographs taken backstage at the American Express: McQueen Black Event. The event, which showcased an exclusively black lineup of pieces from previous collections and some bespoke creations designed specifically for the event, was curated and co-hosted by McQueen himself and featured stars such Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Gemma Ward along with the designer and special creations from milliner Philip Tracy.
Knight reflected on the event by saying: "[McQueen] knew the Black Event was an important moment that should be preserved and shown to the world, so this project has been a great way for me to reflect upon and celebrate our working relationship." And the timing for this celebration could not be better as the late designer's legacy enjoys its current spotlight.
