An award for McQueen

Tomorrow at the British Fashion Awards, Alexander McQueen will receive a posthumous award for his contribution to fashion. Stephen Jones, Vivienne Westwood and John Galliano are some of the designer who have won this prize before.

To celebrate this unique event/award, Nick Knight will present a film he directed featuring Lee's most iconic pieces, styled by Edward Enninful and with a soundtrack by Björk.

"This film is my way of speaking about a very unique and important person who changed my life. My desire was to speak in some way about the dark and the light contained within Lee, and within us all," Nick Knight said.

"The Outstanding Achievement Award celebrates the exceptional talent of an individual who has contributed to the British fashion industry, both internationally and here in the UK, throughout their career," Harold Tillman explained. There was only one person we felt we could recognise with this award this year - Lee McQueen."

"We are honoured to accept the BFC Outstanding Achievement in Fashion Award and that the British Fashion Council have recognised Lee's work and contribution to the British fashion industry," Jonathan Akeroyd, chief executive of Alexander McQueen, said.

As I've always said, McQueen could never be replaced and his work will be recognize everywhere, his legacy is one of a kind, his work, unique.
