Shaun Leane for Alexander McQueen.  Spine Corset, spring/summer 1998 Aluminum and black leather.  “I find beauty in the grotesque, like most artists. I have to force people to look at things.” McQueen Harper’s Bazaar, April 2007 Shaun Leane states, 'He was always fascinated by the spine. So he asked me to create a corset, which was the spine with the rib cage, so that the girl could actually wear this as a corset on the outside of her body, so we would see the beauty of these bone structures on the outside, attached to the dress.'
