The British Fashion Awards 2010 ceremony opened with an outstanding designer tribute movie to Alexander McQueen and his magnificent designs.

The director, Nick Knight, was asked about the inspirations behind his video art. He said, "This film is my way of speaking about a very unique and important person who changed my life. My desire was to speak in some way about the dark and the light contained within Lee, and within us all."

During the ceremony, McQueen was awarded with the posthumous Outstanding Achievement Award. Harold Tillman, the chairman of BFC said, "The Outstanding Achievement Award celebrates the exceptional talent of an individual who has contributed to the British fashion industry both internationally, and here in the UK throughout their career."
