Lots: 124


Alexander McQueen's best friend, closest confidante and muse, Annabelle Neilson (or 'Tinks' as she was known to her family and friends) brought his designs to life by not only modelling in his early shows, but by appearing on red carpets and high society events internationally, dressed head to toe in McQueen.

The sale comprises 124 lots and includes key looks worn on the runway, as well as rare, never-before-seen prototypes - which gives a tantalizing glimpse into Lee's design process. The wardrobe is also the reflection of a unique, close friendship which spanned eighteen years.

This extraordinary auction presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire an intimate piece of McQueen’s design legacy.
