"Taxi Driver" Collection Overview Document AW 1992

This lot has closed

Estimate: $1000+

Description

The original, incredibly rare two-page document overview for the 1992 collection titled "Taxi Driver," 8.5 x 11.75, obtained by Ruti upon visiting the Ritz Hotel showroom pretending she was a buyer. This was her first time meeting McQueen. This entire collection was notoriously lost by McQueen after leaving all the clothes in a bin liner outside a pub while having a pint. All contents were lost with only the documents recording it's collection details remain. This item and it's companion price list (Lot 5003) are not only incredibly rare, but potent pieces of fashion history. Some notable items were a jacket with Robert DeNiro's character "Travis Bickel" from the movie Taxi Driver used as photoprints by McQueen's friend and print designer Simon Ungless. From The Alexander McQueen Archive of Ruti Danan.
