Alexander McQueen at The V&A “Savage Queen”

This is a stupendous exhibition and well worth the £17.50 entry fee.

Just as McQueen has a vast capacity for imagining so the curator has excelled herself in

presenting the master’s work dramatically and cleverly. Every metre of the walk-about display is inspiring; breath-taking.  It’s a treasure chest in the dark. It’s like looking at the Crown Jewels in the Tower.

From tribal and primitive to tartan and ethereal images, from jewel-encrusted platform boots to wispy feathers, rags and lace, from geometric helmets and masks to naked bottoms and pubic hair in a dark wonderland with relevant music we shuffle around the solid manifestation  of a designer’s crazy visions and weird mannequins.

There is much to love and gold to stun.
