NEW YORK NEW YORK: Alexander McQueen – Savage Beauty

The Costume Institute: Alexander McQueen – Savage Beauty.  The Alexander McQueen, Savage Beauty exhibition at The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, until July 31st, is incredible and should not be missed. The exhibition celebrates the late Lee McQueen's extraordinary contributions to fashion. From his Central Saint Martins postgraduate collection in 1992 to his final runway presentation, which took place after his death in February 2010, McQueen challenged and expanded our understanding of fashion beyond utility to a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity.  There are no words to describe the emotion and beauty, the installation, lighting and naturally above all to see the beautiful clothes close up for their craftsmanship and imagination. "Alexander McQueen's iconic designs constitute the work of an artist whose medium of expression was fashion," said Thomas P. Campbell, Director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
