FABTV: Alexander McQueen's Spring 2001

Alexander McQueen is famous for continually pushing the boundaries in fashion. For Spring 2001 McQueen's show took place inside a giant mirrored box. The show ran late (as all shows do) so the audience were left staring at their own reflection for at least an hour. When the show finally began the models were visible to the audience inside the box although the models could not see out. At the end the box broke open to reveal a larger woman posing in the style of controversial photographer Joel Peter Witkin. The aim of the show was to prove that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

The show was based on voyeurism with the audience initially scrutinising themselves as they would the models and then witnessing the models examining their own image. Models used included Kate Moss and Erin O'Connor. What do you think of the show?
