13. Alexander McQueen & The Sublime

Welcome to episode 13 of the Jo's Art History Podcast.

Unlucky for some, but not today, as Jo sits down with art and fashion historian Robert McCaffrey to discuss one of Britain's best loved designers - Alexander McQueen and his love/exploration of the sublime.

Art and fashion have an interesting way of infusing and Robert takes Jo through the concept of the Sublime, McQueen's inspirations from within the history of art and just how he channeled them during his catwalk presentation for his collection No.13.

During the podcast Jo mentions Robert's paper which he has written for the Fashion Studies Journal, you can read Robert's paper: Alexander McQueen: The Sublime and the Melancholy, here. You will not regret it.
