New Orleans Museum of Art will screen six documentaries about the fashion industry this spring in conjunction with "A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes," its first-ever fashion exhibit which opens Feb. 21.

The film series kicks off March 2 with The Legacy of Alexander McQueen, which is a profile of the avant-garde designer whose 2010 suicide rocked the fashion world. McQueen's work figures prominently in "A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes."

There also is a documentary about the making of Vogue's annual tomelike September issue, which sets the tone for fashion coverage for the coming year, and a profile of shoe designer and Sex and the City-era household name Manolo Blahnik.

Here's the complete schedule, which screen at the museum's campus in City Park.

March 2: The Legacy of Alexander McQueen at 6:30 p.m.

March 3: Bangalogia: The Science of Style and Sapeurs: The Men Inside the Suits at 2 p.m.
