Examples of Alexander McQueen’s work will be on show with the opportunity to visit some of the emerging Sarabande emerging maker studios.

Over twenty years ago the idea for a charitable foundation was born out of the creativity and experience of Lee Alexander McQueen. Named after McQueen’s 2007 Spring/Summer collection, the Sarabande Foundation was established. British jewellery designer Shaun Leane explores what the power of imagination has in fuelling the creative process. Learn about his seventeen years of collaboration with Lee Alexander McQueen and how, together, they produced some of fashion’s most ground-breaking catwalk creations. He discusses how this period has continued to influence his attitude to design and instilled ambitions to explore new materials and techniques. It promises to be a fascinating insight for both burgeoning and experienced designers looking to expand their craft.

Lee passionately believed that young creative minds should be given the same opportunities he’d enjoyed, to those with the potential to push boundaries and overturn prevailing orthodoxies. Lee’s idea of ‘giving back’ is central to Sarabande’s philosophy, and the foundation is there to provide financial support to those at graduate and postgraduate level. Sarabande HQ and its 15 studios were established to hone in some of the best emerging creative talent in the UK, providing a building and space for creative talent to flourish without boundaries.

From a traditional jewellery apprenticeship, Shaun Leane has spent twenty years carving out a unique career by pushing the boundaries of jewellery design and applying his skills to fashion, design and architecture. His collections and collaborations have drawn critical praise.
