by - Monday, April 27, 2015

I’m very much looking forward to visiting this extraordinary showcase… Soon to be open on the 14th March until 2nd August 2015 you can officially step into the world of British Fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s work throughout this career. From the tailoring from his early work within the setting which takes you back to his fashion education at Central Saint Martin’s college due to the room being traditionally laid out like an actual designers studios.

From going from simple traditional tailored pieces McQueen’s work developing into the many themes he played with throughout his ever growing career as a fashion designer. From different materials of leather to even rich feathers  explores McQueen’s further steps he creativity taken each season highlighting many themes from  Romantic Primitivism, Romantic Nationalism, and the Romantic Gothic which features throughout a series of rooms of the Victoria and Albert museum.
As you continue the journey through McQueen’s fashion life under the spotlight of the ever well-known British fashion house it is today it pays tribute to his catwalk shows through showcasing the he famous spray-painted dress worn by Shalom Harlow in the finale of the spring/summer 1999 collection whilst videos capture the main highlights and people who were close to McQueen and his career within fashion. 

Not only does the exhibition at the V&A capture McQueen’s work as a fashion designer it also pays tribute to the man himself expressing in text upon walls and narrators his views “LONDON is where I was brought up. It's where my heart is and where I get my inspiration."
This extraordinary showcase of McQueen’s Savage Beauty which this year is sponsored by Swarovski was showcased at the Met Ball four years is something you cannot avoid to miss throughout this year’s spring and summer months when you come to London.
