Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty

Alexander McQueen -a visionary, genius, artist and now fashion legend. I know, a trite description of the late designer, but really there are no other words and the proof of such a statement can be seen with your own eyes at The Metropolitin Museum of Art 'Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty' special exhibit.

I was lucky enough to view the exhibit last weekend and after standing in line for over an hour it became apparent that even in death McQueen has truly achieved icon status in and out of the fashion industry. It's tempting, but I'm not going to write an essay here on the designer; his achievements, personality, tragic death....No, instead I am focusing on the 'Savage Beauty' exhibit.

Thankfully the MET has given the public an opportunity to see in person the art of fashion to which McQueen masterfully contributed to. Photography was not allowed in the exhibit so I am unable to give you the full experience of the props/sets that truly gave insight to the designers creativity. I am able to give you some visual highlights of the artful creations; sculpted feather dresses, shredded crepe gowns, well see for yourself.....
