Herro! I write about fash-un!

If this isn t behind-the-scenes-and-processes generosity, I don t know what is 
#McQueenUnlockingStories 
A super in-depth exhibition probing four of the key looks from the brilliant @alexandermcqueen SS19 collection 
All on display at their new-ish Old Bond St flagship store (itself a treat if you ve ever been mesmerised by the net of butterflies cascading at the double height window) 
From the Ophelia wedding dress to a Victorian funeral black collaged ensemble to a black and white Lyon lace christening gown to the painted leather armour with hook and eye knit.
Birth, marriage and death
Fragility and strength
It s all there broken down into physical fragments of inspiration ephemera -  moodboards, vintage source pieces, key Lee McQueen pieces (Voss! Chess! Sarabande!), sketches, paper machetes, calico toiles, embroidery, trials and then the final outfits themselves. 
You can t officially apply the appellation of haute couture in McQueen s instance but essentially it is.  Devastatingly good.  Go whilst it s still on as it s open to the public on the top floor of the store.
Had on Luc Ferrari s Didascalies from the soundtrack of The Favourite
Thought it was fitting to use it here
