Brilliant original personal photo album belonging to Ruti Danan taken by manual camera of her time working at the McQueen studios and during time spent with Lee McQueen. Comprised of 88 mainly unpublished photos from fashion shows by Alexander McQueen, all color, ranging in size from 4″ x 4″ to 6″ x 4,″ with photo subjects including McQueen, his models and production staff, and sundry designs and pieces created for the following seasonal collections: ‘The Hunger’ (10), Spring/Summer 1996 collection, held at London’s Natural History Museum on October 23, 1995; ‘Highland Rape’ (28), Autumn/Winter 1995 collection, held at the Natural History Museum on March 13, 1995; and ‘Dante’ (50), Autumn/Winter 1996 collection, held at London's Christ Church Spitalfields on March 1, 1996.

These pictures depict intimate and unseen moments from time in the studio during collection preparation and backstage moments with some of the biggest names in fashion, from models to stylists. Included with the ‘Dante’ collection are several photos of McQueen working behind the scenes, relaxing with his dog Minter (an image similar to the example used on the show invitation), and making alterations to pieces that were later used in the acclaimed ‘Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore!’ exhibition, held at London’s Somerset House between November 20, 2013 and March 2, 2014; image examples were also published in "Gods and Kings, The Rise and Fall of Alexander McQueen and John Galliano," by Dana Thomas. In overall fine condition. From The Alexander McQueen Archive of Ruti Danan.
