As all eyes are on Alexander McQueen’s Savage Beauty retrospective at the V&A this week, renowned fashion photographer Nick Knight has released unseen images from 2004. The four images capture behind-the-scene moments at the American Express: McQueen Black Event, which was curated and co-hosted by the late designer himself.

Featuring supermodels, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Gemma Ward, the all-black pieces from past collections possesses a ghostly demeanour in the shadows of the venue as the models hold their pose. Although the retrospective at the V&A has welcomed a mixture of emotions from those nearest and dearest to McQueen, it’s amazing to see the steady stream of stories, images and collection pieces that are starting to come to the public eye as everyone reflects on their love for the designer.
