Nick Waplington‘s photographic work documenting Alexander McQueen‘s final fall/winter collection, titled “Horn of Plenty,” is now a major exhibit at Tate Britain. In a previous post, Waplington speaks on his experiences and dealings with the designer, and now, the gallery gives us a behind-the-scenes look at McQueen’s final creative journey. The installation offers a raw insight into a typically polished world, featuring candid images of McQueen’s process juxtaposed against landfills and recycling plants that acts as a commentary on the creative renewal utilized by the fashion industry, especially because in his final show, McQueen reused both silhouettes and fabrics from his earlier collections. The exhibition will run until May 17. Visit the Tate Britain’s official site for more information.
