Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty


 
  
    




I can't believe I was actually lucky enough to see this exhibition. It has to be one of the most breathtaking collections of history I have ever seen.
I purposely tried not to over-edit these shots so you could get a feel of how eerie it was walking through the 6, or so rooms (curated by the genius that is Andrew Bolton) showcasing McQueen's 19 year contribution to fashion. Imagine dark-lit rooms, a spine-chilling score and echoes of distressed voices- perfection. What was more disturbing were McQueen's quotes, highlighting his depression, angst and obsession with death.



Note. These shots are actually contraband, because you aren't actually allowed to take photos in the exhibition... but I just couldn't help it. So, please link back to me if you use any.
