Alexander McQueen’s flagship store on London’s Old Bond Street recently launched a new experiential space on the top floor which will host a programme of exhibitions, talks and events aimed specifically at inspiring students all over the UK.

‘Unlocking Stories’ is the first installation giving open access to the work in process, stories, teamwork and materials which went into the Spring/Summer 2019 collection. From the treasury of ideas and clothes by Lee Alexander McQueen through to the inspiration and creative processes developed organically by Sarah Burton in the studio today.

The extension of the retail space and event series are designed to uncover the interwoven threads of the research narratives, tailoring, couture, textiles, embroidery and relationship between the hand and technology, which remain deeply embedded in the clothes and the way they are shown.

This programme is designed to offer new angles and perspectives on the thinking and skills of the army of talents involved in the unique working world of Alexander McQueen. A further programme is planned throughout the year, all with a focus on students, with a view to the formation of a creative community.
