Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Exhibit @ The Met. My review!

Today I had the opportunity to check out the McQueen exhibit at the Met. Although I had to wait in line for 45 minutes, it was well worth it! Alexander McQueen’s influence in the fashion world was enormous! For those that are unaware, McQueen committed suicide in 2010 just days after his Mother's death. 

McQueen was clearly a tortured mastermind who really pushed the limits when it came to the fashion world. He channeled his warped thoughts through fashion by giving his fascinating designs a life of their own. Touring this exhibit is a fashionista's dream! The exhibit was an imaginative edgy unsettling work of skillful talent! Each piece was exceptionally stunning and outrageously wicked simultaneously! His uniqueness really reflected through his visually stunning work of art. Each room had a different type of mood with specific type of music. Some of the music was definitely on the eerie side, while some of the music had a very calm vibe… The craftsmanship and design of his clothing definitely showed his dark side, and his one of a kind gift to the fashion world!

This exhibit is only around for a limited time in NYC. It will be gone by the 1st week in August. I highly recommend any who is a fan of fashion to check out this exhibit while you can! If you go early in the morning, I have been told that you can beat the line. You can also by a membership to the Met for $70.00 and skip the line completely. 


More on his suicide below....

British fashion designer Alexander McQueen was discovered dead today after taking his own life. 

The industry was left reeling after the 40-year-old's suicide this morning, which comes just days after the death of his beloved mother, Joyce. 
It is also just three years since his close friend, style guru Isabella Blow - who plucked him from obscurity and helped him become a star - killed herself.

McQueen, who was christened Lee but used his middle name as a designer, was found at his luxury flat in Mayfair, central London. It is believed he hanged himself.
