Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty


If you find yourself in NYC this spring or summer, you absolutely must get down to the Met and view the Savage Beauty exhibit of the late Alexander McQueen´s contribution to fashion.

As a designer, McQueen broke boundaries by astonishing the public with his creative and innovative design work.  His work was dramatic, avant-garde and at times, completely over the top…and this is exactly what made him completely fabulous.

The exhibition, in the Metropolitan Museum’s second-floor Cantor Galleries, features approximately 100 ensembles and 70 accessories from Mr. McQueen’s prolific 19-year career. Drawn primarily from the Alexander McQueen Archive in London, with some pieces from the Givenchy Archive in Paris as well as private collections, signature designs including the bumster trouser, the kimono jacket, and the three-point “origami” frock coat are on view.

The dates of this special exhibition are Exhibition dates: May 4–July 31, 2011.  I am dearly disappointed that for the first time in years, I will not find myself in NYC this summer, and therefore won´t be able to see it.  If you can´t either, make sure to savor the delicious photos below!
