the exhibition, organized by the costume institute, celebrates the late alexander mcqueen’s extraordinary contributions to fashion. from his central saint martins postgraduate collection of 1992 to his final runway presentation, which took place after his death in february 2010, mr. mcqueen challenged and expanded the understanding of fashion beyond utility to a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity. his iconic designs constitute the work of an artist whose medium of expression was fashion. the exhibition will feature approximately one hundred ensembles and seventy accessories from mr. mcqueen’s prolific nineteen-year career.
