Rendez-Vous offers a rare glimpse into the life and mind of one of the most renowned contemporary fashion designers of our era, Lee Alexander McQueen. Providing unique insight into the creative process of this influential and complex figure, this exhibition features key garments from McQueen's most celebrated fashion collections along with photographer Ann Ray's intimate portraits and behind-the-scenes photographs of McQueen's runway shows, taken over the course of their 13-year friendship.
The exhibition includes 50 garments designed by McQueen and over 60 photographs taken by Ray, the only photographer permitted to document the behind-the-scenes culture of his runway shows and atelier.
Organized and produced by Barrett Barrera Projects.
