Shalom Harlow at Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 1999 - No. 13
This show was inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement and it ended with the model Shalom Harlow rotating on a turntable wearing a white dress being spray painted by two industrial robots. Harlow trained as a ballerina; It’s often said that the inspiration behind the collction was the dying swan. In actual fact, the inspiration came from an installation of the artist Rebecca Horn, of two machine guns firing paint at each other.
