Alexander McQueen - Spray Painting Robots (Dress, No. 13 S/S 1999)
Live Fashion Meets Arts & Crafts
This bold fashion moment from 1999 will always feel recent and surprising. Many attempts were done since to imitate the concept, but I remain very attached to this original footage that was curated for the "Savage Beauty" exhibition at the Met in 2011.
“[The finale of this collection] was inspired by an installation by artist Rebecca Horn of two shotguns firing blood-red paint at each other.” - Alexander McQueen
