June has been a been a busy month with little time to blog. So, what have I been up to? PLENTY! But one thing I’ve been dying to share, is my trip to The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) to see the special Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit. The exhibition is a retrospective of Alexander McQueen’s career. Starting from his postgraduate collection to his final runway presentation. It was absolutely breathtaking! I spent two hours walking a snails-pace through the several rooms not only because it’s ridiculously crowded, but because I was absorbing the colors, details and unique looks McQueen designed. If you can make it to New York City, I highly suggest checking out the exhibit. It has been extended a week (till August 7th, 2011). Some friendly advice, I went during the week and even at 10am it was packed! So come early on a day you’ve got a few extra hours. Otherwise, you will be waiting in line just to enter! If you can’t see the amazing clothes and accessories in person, I highly suggest watching the narrative film found on The Met’s website. The Curator provides an in-depth perspective on the garments displayed.
