LACMA PRESENTS A CINEMATIC EXHIBIT FOCUSING ON ALEXANDER McQUEEN

"Lee Alexander McQueen: Mind Mythos Muse” is the new eclectic, flashy, cinematic, and amusing LACMA exhibit dedicated to one of the most fabulous fashion designers of our time, Alexander McQueen.

The museography focuses on the artistry, creativity, and body of work of the prolific Scottish designer from 1990 to 2010.

LACMA’s buoyant exposition spotlights the dresses, fabrics, and accessories of the fashion virtuoso who killed himself in 2010 at the age of 39, right after the passing of his mother. 

The museum displays many classy McQueen garments from the Regina J. Drucker Collection, joining with other LACMA’s permanent collection artworks.

McQueen founded his label in 1992. The four-time winner of the British Designer of the Year was chief designer at the Givenchy firm from 1996 to 2001. 

MacQueen’s fame flourished, making him the recipient of the International Designer of the Year award in 2003.
