The Costume Institute‘s “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is insanely beautiful, intensely dramatic, and — most importantly — profoundly moving. Spanning from McQueen‘s Central Saint Martins graduation collection to his posthumous autumn/winter 2010-11 show, the exhibit celebrates an extraordinary and prolific career cut tragically short.
Almost two months ago, Alexander McQueen was found hanged in his London home by his housekeeper. In the aftermath of McQueen’s death, many — both fans and friends alike — have mourned his death. On Friday, Cathy Horyn of The New York Times published what may be the most poignant piece on McQueen and his legacy yet.
