Fashion Culture Online Event: Alexander McQueen: Unseen
April 15, 2021 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Alexander McQueen’s spectacular shows were full of extraordinary moments and people. Author and photographer Robert Fairer will discuss his stunning, high-energy photographs of McQueen’s runway shows. Fairer, who was Vogue‘s backstage fashion photographer for more than a decade, was an integral part of the whirl of activity behind the scenes. In Alexander McQueen: Unseen, Fairer’s images, which capture both the glamour and the grit, represent a new genre of fashion photography and are a treasure trove of inspiration. Robert Fairer joins writer and consultant John Mathison (of Instagram’s @McQueen_Vault) in a talk moderated by MFIT’s senior curator of education Tanya Melendez-Escalante.
The Museum at FIT’s fall Fashion Culture programs have moved online! All programs will premiere on the museum’s YouTube channel at 6 pm on the designated day. Please subscribe the the channel for information about future events.
