Every now and then a blogger decides to write a post that’s horribly self-indulgent. Or if you’re me twice in two months, which is why I find myself talking about an exhibition that ends in 2 weeks and is sold out. Savage Beauty at the Victoria and Albert museum has to be one of the most incredibly well curated shows I have ever been to.
GirlRunningLate booked our tickets back in February and it being quite some time ago I forgot about for a while, but a recent trip to The McQueen Play helped build my excitement again. And I'm glad it did as this was an exhibition not to be missed - sorry am honestly not trying to rub it in!
We walked in to a haunting image of McQueen’s face, atmospheric music and the voice of the man himself being interviewed. Quotes he said dancing around the room like an agitated fly in an enclosed space.
Those clothes..... Oh those clothes, even the simplest dress had exquisite detail. Cotton skirts glazed so as to give a leather effect, dresses designed to provoke horror and amazement. Which were bang on the emotions conjured each time I entered a new room. I only wish I had gone earlier as then I could have booked a second trip...
and a third
and a fourth
Continue to fade.
