Strike a Pose #6: McQueen

3–5pm
Strike a Pose #6: McQueen

Event Details

Join us for a series of film screenings about the fascinating fashion industry introduced by fashion expert Angela Lassig, who puts modern-day haute couture and street apparel into historic perspective.

An astonishingly moving film perfectly attuned to its brilliant, troubled subject, McQueen (2018) relates the rags-to-riches-to-self-destruction trajectory of British designer Alexander McQueen to his work itself with piercing acumen. Framing and sound design enhance the ‘savage beauty’ of five legendary shows, their inherently cinematic nature now unleashed on the giant screen.

'What McQueen reminds those obsessives and laypeople alike is that fashion is an incredibly emotional art form, and McQueen’s work was some of the most moving there was or ever will be.' – New York Magazine
