Catalogue Note

‘This was the third show I worked on. One day, Lee told me that as a child he used to lick rose thorns and stick them onto his face. From this sweet childhood memory came the idea of sculpting thorns from silver which were applied to the models’ faces in the show.’ S.L.

Created for Alexander McQueen's 'Dante' Collection, Autumn/Winter 1996-97.
