The Met exhibit for Alexander McQueen
Often times, I find that our fibi & clo customers like to ask me about things to do in NYC. So… if you’re coming to the big apple anytime soon, stop by the Met and pay homage to world-renowned fashion designer, Alexander McQueen. The announcement of his sudden death burst through the media waves as a shock on February 11th, 2010. Recently, the Metropolitan Museum of Art opened up an exhibit, which has been wildly successful with over hundreds of thousands of visitors since its opening day, May 4th, in honor of the late designer called “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.” You really get the opportunity to understand the reasoning and inspiration behind anything with the name Alexander McQueen on it. You see him struggle with himself and the fashion industry with personal quotes of his along all the walls, which are doused with over 100 of his pieces. You can find anything from his groundbreaking bumster trousers to his famous armadillo shoes to unfinished pieces for Lady Gaga. So spend a day relaxing in Central Park and then head over to the Met to learn about the legendary designer.
