Yesterday I was lucky enough to go to the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum. My friend had bought me tickets for my birthday, which was so lovely of her, unfortunately she couldn't come as she was poorly so I took one of my friends from work.
I have never been to the V&A before so I was really excited. We arrived a bit early as we had a time slot at 7.30pm and went to a cafe nearby and had a glass of wine. 7.30pm soon rolled round and we went to the museum. I managed to get a few snaps before I was told off, whoops! I honestly didn't see any signs saying no photography, so they must have been pretty subtle.
The exhibition was so interesting, there were clothes from all his well known exhibitions such as Highland Rape. He famously had a Kate Moss hologram at his NY fashion show in 2006 which is on display, it is more mesmerizing in person then any video will be. The walls were also covered in quotes from Alexander McQueen himself. They were really interesting and often a little disturbing, this was enhanced by the eerie music playing throughout the exhibition. If you're a fan of Alexander McQueen you will know that he was a somewhat troubled character which was definitely reflected in his collections and his words.
I would really recommend going to the exhibition if you get a chance, it is really inspiring and interesting to find out more about the designer behind the collections.
