I know it’s been ages. I had exams and then I decided to relax for a bit by visiting friends, going out, planning all the things I want to do and preparing for the next year ahead so please do bare with me. Anyway, I don’t want to ramble so let me proceed with today’s post. Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty Exhibition held at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Wow. I have no words. Hands down THE best exhibition I have ever set foot in to be perfectly honest with you. If you can get yourself to London, I desperately urge you to head down there and see for yourself how amazing this exhibition is. It really does capture McQueen’s talent and savage authenticity that his work has. Not only that but you can see up front how he used his skills obtained from Savile Row and it is just simply out of this world. The audio played consists of classical music and dark, eerie music with McQueen’s voice echoing in the background. Video footage of his catwalks and fashion shows are continuously played. There even is the notorious Alexander McQueen x Kate Moss ethereal hologram being viewed in a dark room. Do check the video footage I took of this notorious hologram over on my YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhSvL9mI7WI
As you drop your jaw at the following pictures, notice the creativity of a man who left his name behind in the history of fashion.
Phenomenal right? Please do see it for yourself – it is SO much better in person and yes there is a discount if you are a student! For an exhibition I would have thought to have been worth about £90 I cannot believe I paid only one ninth of the price. You have been warned: if you don’t go, you will simply miss out!
See you in my next post,
