Candid images from the unpolished fashion world – of Alexander McQueen's collection of discarded elements from the sets of his past shows.

Nick Waplington, Untitled, 2008-2009

On 10 March a new exhibition will open at Tate Britain, showcasing the result of a unique collaboration between fashion designer Alexander McQueen (RIP) and artist Nick Waplington. Waplington documented McQueen’s work with the autumn/winter 2009 collection – from creative process to final product. His photography shows a raw side of the fashion world, a side that’s not exposed on a daily basis. McQueen’s collection Horn of Plenty is one of the most celebrated fashion collections in recent history; this exhibition really is a must-see. Skip Oxford Street and head down to Millbank. It’ll be worth it. More here.
