Shalom Harlow at Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 1999 “No. 13”

The finale, inspired by artist Rebecca Horn’s installation of two shotguns shooting blood-red paint at each other, has become one of the most precious moments in fashion history. 
Model Shalom Harlow moves in a balletic way on a slowly rotating platform as robot arms, which took a week to program, sprays black and yellow paint on the previously white and rather simple dress. 
When the robots were finished Shalom walked up infront of the photographers and audience and posed in an almost surrendered way before walking out in darkness. 
This moment will even now, after 14 years, give me shivers all over my body.
