Alexander McQueen’s impact was profound and far-reaching, influencing creative communities from fashion and design, to visual art, photography and performance. 

Celebrating the opening of Alexander McQueen: Mind, Mythos, Muse, international guests and local experts join NGV curators in a series of drop-in conversations unpacking Alexander McQueen’s techniques, his many influences, and his unique and innovative approach.


Glynis Traill-Nash is one of Australia’s most respected and experienced fashion writers and commentators. For two decades, her engaging, informative – and opinionated – writing has endeared her to readers, most recently at The Australian where she was Fashion Editor for 10 years. She has held similar roles at the Sunday TelegraphIn StyleGrazia and The Sun-Herald, and written for titles including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and The Sydney Morning Herald.

With a suitcase always (appropriately) packed, Glynis has traversed the globe in the name of fashion, from Paris haute couture to New York, London and Milan Fashion Weeks, from Copenhagen to Tokyo, Darwin to Dallas, Berlin to Bendigo and beyond. She is a coveted public speaker and facilitator and has worked with many of this country’s leading institutions including the National Gallery of Victoria, Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum, the Art Gallery of South Australia, National Gallery of Australia, Sydney Writers’ Festival and Melbourne Fashion Festival.
