Annabelle Neilson – or ‘Tinks’ to family and friends – was Alexander McQueen’s best friend and muse. Across an 18-year friendship she accrued an enormous wardrobe of spectacular McQueen clothes with many designs adapted specifically for her and cut accordingly. Following her untimely death aged 49 just 8 years after McQueen, the collection is going on sale at Kerry Taylor Auctions. Read the moving introduction here, and view the full catalogue here ahead of the auction on 30 March.
