With this year's Costume Institute Gala, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, looming, it seems every online fashion publication is buzzing with McQueen tributes and retrospectives. Along the same thread, I wanted to focus on one of my favourite creative collaborations; Nick Knight and Alexander McQueen. When these two boundary-pushing artists collided, the result was indisputably magical. To watch a lengthy, telling interview of McQueen conducted by Nick Knight, click here.
