savage beauty, alexander mcqueen’s exhibition is at the v&a

If you saw the exhibition at the Met, you might feel as I do… that you need to see it again and again.  There was so much to take in… it was the most inspiring, beautiful exhibition I’ve ever seen.  If you find yourself in London soon, it’s on at the V&A from the 14th march – 2 august 2015
