You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. McQueen's technical precision and lightness of touch, along with that weird, wild, and wandering imagination, are apparent in every image.The American Matisse: The Dealer, His Artists, His Collection: The Pierre and Maria-Gaetana Matisse Collection. There is a fine Preface written by Andrew Bolton who curated the exhibition, an Introduction by Susannah Frankel, an interview by Tim Banks with the now almost equally famous Sarah Burton (designer of Kate's Middleton's Royal wedding gown).

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty celebrates the astounding creativity and originality of a designer who relentlessly questioned and confronted the conventional parameters of fashion to express ideas about culture, politics, and identity. Can we first off just praise the cover I mean unique, which is a way of describing the designer as well.What really struck me about his art (moving pieces on humans) was the pain he felt, transformed by sharp relief into beauty. Also included is a pretty personal interview with Sarah Burton, current Creative Director of Alexander McQueen and the lady behind Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, about the design process, McQueen’s influences and what it was like to work with a creative powerhouse.
