I knew early on that one of the highlights of my New York visit this time would be the retrospective of Fashion’s Alexander McQueen at the Met Museum; and it did not disappoint. The only wish I had was for the museum to be emptier so I could enjoy the exhibition more.
Despite the crowd, I was able to come close to most of the work. Not only were they innovative in the design and creative in the patterning, but they also had great tailoring and flawless execution. Each hem, each stitch were made to look very effortless yet to appear elegant.
Much was written about the dark side of the designer, whose demise by his own hand last year shocked the fashion world. How he wrestled with his own demons and, yet, managed to leave his mark in this world with such stunning creation would not be such a bad template from which to draw one’s experience.
No words will suffice to describe the beauty of this exhibition. I cannot emphasize enough for anyone to catch the show before it ends. A detailed writing on the exhibition is available at the Museum’s online site, which you can find by clicking HERE.
