Alexander McQueen Retrospective at the Metropolitan

In today’s Guardian, I read about the unveiling of the 19-year career of Alexander McQueen’s exhibition, entitled Savage Beauty, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. A preview of the show, which will run 4 May to 31 July 2011, was presented by Anna Wintour and Samantha Cameron at the Ritz as part of London fashion week.

The US exhibition will feature more than 100 pieces of work.

The curator of the Metroplitan’s Costume Institute, Andrew Bolton said: “His fashions were an outlet for his emotions, an expression of the deepest, often darkest, aspects of his imagination. He was a true romantic in the Byronic sense of the word – he channelled the sublime.”
