Andrew Bolton, curator of The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, discusses the Met's popular exhibition of the late fashion designer Alexander McQueen's work and McQueen's contribution to art and fashion.
Curator Andrew Bolton discusses the exhibition “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” on view at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Organized by The Costume Institute, it celebrates the late Alexander McQueen’s contributions to fashion—he challenged and expanded the understanding of fashion beyond utility to a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity. The show features approximately 100 ensembles and 70 accessories from McQueen’s 19-year career. “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” is on view through August 7.
