Sarabande was set up by the late designer, Lee Alexander McQueen, who left the majority of his estate to support creative and visionary talent. In addition to providing scholarships and studio space for artists, Sarabande produces a number of events, from the practical to the inspirational.

We were touched by the clarity and pragmatism  of your building and the spirit that it contains.

Sir Antony Gormley, Artist

The work you're doing with Sarabande is so inspiring.

Andrew Bolton, Curator-in-Charge at the  MET Costume  Institute & Sarabande Patron

That his legacy supports a charitable foundation for artists and designers means he is alive through the work he supports.

Sam Taylor-Johnson, Artist, Film  Director & Sarabande Patron

It is truly amazing what the foundation is doing.

Christian Hemmerle, Jeweller

Lee really did believe in young people and helping them to realise their dreams, and the creative professions, but maybe fashion most of all, rely heavily on renewal and fresh talent.

Sarah Burton OBE, Creative Director of Alexander McQueen & Sarabande Patron

What an incredible place - and such an honour to be able to see into all of your artists' respective universes!
