Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty @ The Met
Last week I had the opportunity to travel to NYC to check out the McQueen exhibit at the Met. Although I had to wait in line for 45 minutes, it was well worth it! Alexander McQueen's influence
in the fashion world was enormous!
McQueen was clearly a tortured mastermind who really pushed the limits when it came to the fashion world. He channeled his warped thoughts through fashion by
giving his fascinating designs a life of their own. Touring this exhibit is a fashionista's dream! The exhibit was an imaginative edgy unsettling work of skillful talent!
Each piece was exceptionally stunning and outrageously wicked simultaneously! His uniqueness really reflected through his visually stunning work of art.
Each room had a different type of mood with specific type of music. Some of the music was definitely on the eerie side, while some of the music had a very calm vibe...
The craftsmanship and design of his clothing definitely showed his dark side, and his one of a kind gift to the fashion world!
This exhibit is only around for a limited time in NYC. It will be gone by the 1st week in August. I highly recommend any who is a fan of fashion to check out this
exhibit while you can! If you go early in the morning, I have been told that you can beat the line. You can also by a membership to the Met for $70.00 and
skip the line completely.
Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” runs through July 31 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; (212) 535-7710, metmuseum.org.
