Romantic Notions

When I heard about the  latest exhibition Alexander McQueen: ‘Savage Beauty’ at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, I  very nearly bought a plane ticket straight to that big juicy apple. Devoted to outlining McQueen’s clear contribution to the world of fashion, this exhibition curated by Andrew Bolton is no ordinary retrospective.

This considered and emotional presentation is not arranged chronologically, but instead by a narrative of themes and ideas summarizing his discourse of design. And if you too cannot hop on a flight, at the very least, head to The Met blog to watch the video tour. It’s almost as if you are there but without the jet lag!
