According to a report by the BBC, the spectacular, now-closed London exhibition, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty was visited by close to half a million people and if you missed it, bummer, but perhaps consider signing this petition to take it worldwide.  

As a final fanfare, long-time McQueen collaborator Nick Knight and his team at SHOWstudio have released a series of archival footage, the newest featuring the designer's most iconic pieces.

While the footage was shot in 2010 for Knight's tribute film, To Lee, With Love, Nick, Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen creative director, selected which of the designer's pieces should appear in the film.  Watch below, be mesmerised and fall in love.
