Fashion visionary Lee Alexander McQueen is the subject of a new exhibit this summer at the Frist Art Museum.

Why it matters: McQueen, who died by suicide in 2010, is one of the most celebrated and influential fashion designers in recent history. The Frist exhibit gives Nashville fashionistas the opportunity to see his work up close while also offering a more personal glimpse of the man himself.
