Fare Thee Well Alexander McQueen

Here’s to one of my favorite designers Alexander McQueen. He had an unparalleled way of transforming fabric and fashion into uniquely outrageous creatures, seemingly coming into being from a parallel dimension. In McQueen’s world, taxidermied bird feathers become opulent headpieces fit for Marie Antoinette, or Red Riding Hood’s famous scarlet cape is given new life as a shining silk mantle ready to write its own new fairy tale. His shows always shocked and awed, featuring over-the-top performative aspects, whether a life size hologram of Kate Moss wearing flowing fabrics, or recreating the scene of a shipwreck on the runway. McQueen’s cosmic creations pulled from antiquity and the future simultaneously, creating a whole new sensational language all its own. His unique vision will be missed!
