Alexander McQueen To Be Honored At Tomorrow's British Fashion Awards




    As we approach the one-year anniversary of Alexander McQueen's untimely death, there's been no shortage of celebrations and tributes to the visionary designer. The latest honor comes tomorrow in the form of the award for Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Design, presented by the British Fashion Council.

    As part of the British Fashion Awards' annual ceremony, a film directed by Nick Knight and with music by Bjork will be featured, highlighting McQueen's most iconic pieces. The award itself “celebrates the achievement of a designer whose work has had an exceptional impact on global fashion,” WWD reports.

    Over here across the pond, the Met is readying itself for "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty," this year's Costume Institute restrospective show, which will run from May 4 through July 31.
