PRETTY PICTURES: "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty"

We wish we could jet over to New York just to see this exhibition. "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" at The Metropolitan Museum of Art looks so breathtakingly beautiful! McQueen, never being one to take a conventional take on fashion, always looked to historical events and figures to create his narratives. The result was often a strong female figure, also with a sense of certain fragility. 

Being a great couturier, each garment consisted of such intricate delicacies, whether it was beadwork, lacework, pleats and ruffles, feathers, or even real flowers sewn onto the garments. 

The garments are so beautiful, we could stare at them forever. It's hard to believe how much this designer accomplished in such a short lifespan. 

There is spectacular jewellery too, or more like body armour, really. Hopefully, we will soon be able to see it in person. For now, we'll have to settle for the exhibition catalogue.
