To illustrate the fact that creativity emerges from countless perspectives, the Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2022 collection features a group of twelve artists to express their individual working practices.
All have been given complete creative freedom resulting in a rich conversation between their work and the selected looks. The artworks are conceived to be displayed alongside the McQueen pieces they relate to in a temporary installation designed to showcase the individual approaches and the ways in which artworks and looks interact.
“I wanted to engage in a new creative dialogue with the collection this season and see how the artists interpreted the work that we created in the studio. It’s been very interesting to see how creativity has sprung from so many different perspectives, and the outcomes that have been varied and beautiful,” said Sarah Burton, Creative Director.
The artists include: Ann Cathrin November Høibo, Beverly Semmes, Bingyi, Cristina de Middel, Guinevere van Seenus, Hope Gangloff, Marcia Kure, Jackie Nickerson, Jennie Jieun Lee, Judas Companion, Marcela Correa, and Marcia Michael
“We wanted the artists to have total freedom to respond to the looks, creating bold and thought-provoking conversations with their works. I hope that viewers will be as inspired as we have all been by witnessing these creative processes,” said Burton.
