This exhibit was quite amazing, and totally packed! I would try to go on a week day so you can take your time going through it. McQueen's work is more art-object, less actual fashion, and there is a very dark theme running throughout, totally worth a look.
It seems we've been living in an Alexander McQueen dreamland for the past week. And today the Costume Institute officially opens its doors to McQueen's iconic designs. From his infamous bumsters to pieces from his very first collection, Savage Beauty is an exhibition that we surely will not miss.
Also, don't forget to view our own homage to the designer on Fifth Avenue: bit.ly/jSYXfT
i finally got a chance to check out the exhibit ... simply the best exhibit I have ever been to, across any type of expression of art or fashion. he was truly a genius beyond description. you won't believe how we took his unique creative vision and translated it into wearable fashion. exhibit continues until the first week of August.
CAN'T wait for this exhibit at the Met. It's for anyone who loves art, design and absolute creativity. McQueen is one of the recent fashion geniuses with his wild, unfettered and dark imagination: gothic Victoriana, dresses tufted with blood-red feathers, decorated with dying flowers or rattling with clamshells. The odd, but wonderful accessories send a tingle down my spine. May 4-July 31.
