Savage Beauty: Alexander McQueen Retrospective at the Met

Posted May 05, 2011

The Metropolitan Museum of Arts is paying tribute to some of the late Alexander McQueen's most riveting creations in a Retrospective exhibition called Savage Beauty. It opens May 3rd in New York city and features an awe inspiring collection from one of UK's most talented designers and artists. McQueen was a true visionary in the fashion world, dreaming life into fashion.  He was a creative genius who brought profound depth and romantic sensibility to his craft and enjoyed the theatrics of it.  It was about empowerment and being in tune with the sublime. Each creation renders a powerful and dramatic experience. He will be missed.

His clothes and mise-en-scène were not only mesmerizing but also poignant statements about history, the force of nature, technology and our place in the future. If you are lucky enough to be in New York from May 3rd to July 31st 2011, don't miss this show. We're already spellbound.
