Overview

Lee Alexander McQueen’s last show before his untimely death in 2010, titled The Horn of Plenty, functioned as a kind of personal survey in which McQueen revisited his 15-year archive of work, revitalizing it through the new collection. He invited photographer Nick Waplington to document the collection from inception to runway. "It is not just a book about a season in a fashion house," says Waplington; "It is also a personal record of Lee’s imagination, his version of himself, and a tribute to the many important and lasting relationships he had with all those who worked alongside him." With over 250 photographs, Working Process allows readers an intimate glimpse into McQueen’s dynamic creative process. This boxed limited edition of 100 copies includes an original signed and numbered print by Waplington, which features McQueen behind the scenes at the fashion shoot, from page 36 of the book.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times, Arena - Malina Joseph Gilchrist
Nearly four years after the sudden death of Alexander McQueen rocked the fashion world, the new book "Alexander McQueen: Working Process" documents the designer's fall/winter 2009 collection, which Mr. McQueen intended as a culmination of 15 years of his work to that point. "He had something else he wanted to do beyond fashion," said Nick Waplington, the photographer Mr. McQueen recruited to capture the creation of the collection, from sketches to fittings to a final show. The images show the designer in moments of joy, grief and strife. They present a haunting portrait of a designer at work.
