Seems as if Michelle Obama isn’t the only fan of Alexander McQueen. In preparation of the upcoming Costume Institute’s exploration of McQueen designs, London is hosting “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” at The Ritz London. Anna Wintour, Samantha
Cameron (Britain’s first lady), Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton and Met director Thomas Campbell have put together an event that will honor McQueen’s life and work. Featuring insight from some of his closest friends like Stella McCartney and design partner Sarah Burton, the event will showcase over 100 pieces of his work from 1994 to 2010 and have a separate screening room with a loop of his runway shows.
This event is needless to say, ICONIC and I for one will definitely make my way back to London to view the exhibit.
Open to the public May 4, 2011 to July 31, 2011.
