Fashion IS Art!

It was only a matter of time (and quite frankly I am surprised it took this long) that designs by the late Alexander McQueen ended up  at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Needless to say, the items on display certainly add a bit of panache and high fashion to the place -not to mention solidifying the thought that Fashion is Art! Amen!

Alexander McQueen’s Iconic Designs to be Celebrated in Spring 2011 Costume Institute Retrospective at Metropolitan Museum 

  • *Gala Benefit May 2, 2011, with Honorary Chairs François-Henri Pinault and Salma Hayek, and Co-Chairs Colin Firth, Stella McCartney, and Anna Wintour
  • *Exhibition dates: May 4–July 31, 2011
  • *Exhibition location: Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Exhibition Hall, second floor
  • *Press preview: Monday, May 2, 10 a.m.–1 p.m.

The spring 2011 Costume Institute exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, will be on view May 4 through July 31 (preceded on May 2 by The Costume Institute Gala Benefit). The exhibition will celebrate the late Mr. McQueen’s extraordinary contributions to fashion. From his Central Saint Martins postgraduate collection in 1992 to his final runway presentation, which took place after his death in February 2010, Mr. McQueen challenged and expanded our understanding of fashion beyond utility to a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity.

The exhibition is made possible by Alexander McQueen™.
