Inferno: McQueen – Kent Baker in Conversation

Saturday 11th April 2015 4pm - 5pm 107 Charing Cross Road Chargeable Event

On display for the first time at the Gallery at Foyles are the previously unseen, backstage photographs from Alexander McQueen’s seminal show Dante. On show from 20 March to 3 May 2015, these striking images are taken from Kent Baker’s new book, Inferno: Alexander McQueen, published on 30 March by Laurence King Publishing.


To accompany our Gallery exhibition (running until 3rd May), photographer Kent Baker will be in conversation with curator Olly Walker and fashion editor and journalist Melanie Rickey for an hour-long conversation on McQueen, the Dante show, and his heretofore unseen backstage photos.


This panel event will be chaired by Jean Wainwright, Professor of Contemporary Art and Photography, UCA and Associate at Futurecity.



  • On our blog, Andrew Wilson, author of new biography Alexander McQueen: Blood Beneath the Skin, recalls McQueen's years at Central St Martins, former occupants of the building now home to Foyles' flagship, when his MA show took the fashion world by storm and the seeds of his partnership with the legendary Isabella Blow were sown
