Savage McQueen

Alexander McQueen's breath-taking creations will be exhibited in a posthumous retrospective at the Metropolitan Museum's Costume Institute, launched by this year's Met Ball on May 2. The ball attracts the biggest names in fashion and is an appropriate way of showcasing the great work of an irreplaceable genius who forever changed the world of fashion.

 'What was so incredible about him was he could do the simplest things and the most complicated things. He was a proper genius, and that is a very overused word. If he'd done art, he would have been the best; if he'd done architecture, he would have been the best'  - Daphne Guinness (Harper's Bazaar 2011)
