McQueen Honoured at BFAs

Lee McQueen was honoured earlier tonight in London at the British Fashion Awards, posthumously, with the prize for Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design.

The ceremony was to open with a film by Nick Knight, photographer, Director of and friend of Lee.

It’s a haunting and beautiful film – but it saddens me. The loss of Lee McQueen feels so personal for so many of us that adored him from afar. It still stings, for me – still hurts that we have lost not only a gifted artist, but a beautiful soul as well.


“This film is my way of speaking about a very unique and important person who changed my life. My desire was to speak in some way about the dark and the light contained within Lee, and within us all.” Nick Knight

McQueen’s memorial was held earlier this year and his designs will be exhibited at the Met next May.

Film credits.
