Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty

‘You’ve got to know the rules to break them. That’s what I’m here for, to demolish the rules but to keep the tradition.’

– Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen’s dashing creativity was expressed through the technical artistry of his designs and the dramatic intensity of his fashion shows. Drawing on avant-garde installation and performance art, these were also emphatically autobiographical. McQueen fearlessly challenged the conventions of fashion. Rare among designers, he saw beyond clothing’s physical constraints to its conceptual and imaginative possibilities.

The largest retrospective of McQueen’s work finally landed in his birthplace – London. From his first steps in London to the highest runways in Paris, we had the opportunity to walk through his style evolution admiring his most beautiful creations and with them had a oneiric journey in his mind. The exhibition was in Victoria and Albert museum and the price of the ticket was £16. Here are some pictures from the exhibition:







One of my favourite McQueen’s quotes about London is:

‘You take inspiration from the street, with the trousers so low. You don’t need to go to India, you can find it in places like Bethnal Green or down Brick Lane. It’s everywhere’

– Alexander McQueen
