The Savage Beauty exhibition at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art showcases the work of the late Alexander McQueen.
It has been more than a year since his death, but the British designer's fashion house remains cutting edge and influential.
Its latest commission, Catherine Middleton's wedding dress, was designed by McQueen's new creative director Sarah Burton.
The BBC's Will Gompertz spoke to Andrew Bolton, the curator of the exhibition in New York.
