Resurrection Vintage is excited to present Inferno: Alexander McQueen, by Melanie Rickey and photographer Kent Baker. This book dives deeply into a single show of McQueen, the AW 1996 collection, called Dante. The 128-page hardcover volume contains 110 photographs, some published for the first time. Most photos are black and white from backstage. There are also closeups of garments and McQueen’s sketches. All copies are "new-old stock" that have been stored, and are in excellent "new old stock" vintage condition. 

London 1996: Alexander McQueen took over the Hawksmoor masterpiece Christ Church in London's East End for what was quite possibly the greatest fashion show on earth. A candle-lit, cruciform catwalk with a backdrop of stained-glass windows set the tone for an extraordinary collection. Lace sat against chiffon and rubbed shoulders with couture and club-culture clothing and digital print. Dante was the seminal collection that would resonate throughout Alexander McQueen's career. This book features unique photographs shot behind the scenes, with raw, unseen pictures of the designer, models and clothes. The fashion creatives who worked with McQueen to make the show such a success recall this pivotal time in the designer's career and reflect on what made ‘Dante’ truly groundbreaking. Newly created imagery of clothes shown on the catwalk gives an insight into why this collection was so special.
