Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty

Even Lady GaGa admits she owes many of her more eye-catching fashion choices to the late British designer Alexander McQueen. The boutique Alexander McQueen is honored to be able to share the remarkable and unique vision and creativity of the founder, Lee Alexander McQueen, which had been celebrated in a retrospective of his work, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, at The Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum in New York City. Thomas P. Campbell, Director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art said, "Alexander McQueen's iconic designs constitute the work of an artist whose medium of expression was fashion. This landmark exhibition continues the Museum's tradition of celebrating designers who changed the course of history and culture by creating new possibilities."

Galleries had showcased recurring themes and concepts in Alexander McQueen's work beginning with "The Romantic Mind" which examined his subversion of traditional tailoring and dressmaking practices through displacement and deconstruction, and "Romantic Gothic" which highlighted McQueen's narrative approach to fashion and illuminate his engagement with Romantic literary traditions such as death, decay, and darkness. Further galleries featured the themes Romantic Naturalism, Romantic Primitivism, Romantic Nationalism, and Romantic Exoticism, as well as a Cabinet of Curiosities.

Five of Alexander McQueen's landmark collections that explored his engagement with the Romantic sublime and the dialectics of beauty and horror would be interspersed among the galleries - Dante - autumn/winter 1996-97, # 13 - spring/ summer 1999, VOSS - spring/summer 2001, Irere - spring/summer 2003, and Plato's Atlantis - spring/summer 2010. The exhibition was held from 4th May 2011 until the 7th August 2011. The exhibition was made possible by Alexander McQueen ™. Additional support was provided in partnership with American Express and Condé Nast. One of popular quotes from Alexander McQueen is, "People find my things sometimes aggressive," ... "But I don't see it as aggressive. I see it as romantic, dealing with a dark side of personality."
