Although no where close to being a fashionista, and looking a bit out of place amongst the most exuberant fashion crowd at this exhibition… But it was this years must see as I understood it from a friend who had been fascinated at the MET version back in 2011.. and didn’t shy away from seeing it again in London over and over 😉 

My high expectations were thoroughly fulfilled by the extreme, daring and art-like pieces on show, as well as by the handsomely dark scenography. The « cabinet de curiosité » room filled with extraordinary accessories was in itself worth the trip…

Mc Queen shows were in themselves works of art, in my opinion much more so than many of the « pulling the brain » pieces seen in museums. Clearly thought-provoking and fashion industry-critics, they reveal an interesting personality, quite far from the image I have of a fashion designer. Definitely one to be missed..
