Photographer and SHOWStudio director Nick Knight remembers his late friend, visionary designer Alexander McQueen, the best way he knows how: through film.

McQueen, who passed away this past February, was famous for meticulously tailored couture pieces and graphic prints favoured by avant-garde performers like Lady Gaga and Bjork, the latter of whom provided an exclusive soundtrack to Knight’s video tribute entitled To Lee, with love, Nick.

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