Inferno: Alexander McQueen

Complimenting the arrival of Savage Beauty, the epic Alexander McQueen exhibition at London's Victoria and Albert Museum, Inferno offers a glimpse of the machine behind McQueen's notoriously radical shows. A series of intimate backstage photographs and interviews with key participants, Inferno focuses upon one seminal show in the designer's brief but dazzling career. Dante was staged appropriately in Nicholas Hawksmore's masterwork: Christchurch Spitalfields. In 1996 when coaxing the fashion press to the Deep-East was a risky strategy, McQueen mounted a chaotic and brilliant assault on the senses and sensibilities of all present and began his journey into fashion's stratosphere. This beautifully designed book goes some way to showing just how much of a force of nature McQueen was, how he cajoled, inspired and manipulated those around him to bring his uncompromising visions into being and how from these urgently inspired fever dreams he became arguably the most important designer of the last half century.
