Savage Beauty...

Alexander McQueen was indeed a genius of our time. "Savage Beauty" an exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum displayed Mcqueen's designs in an enchanting format, right from the entrance to the exit the viewer is engulfed into the tension filled Romanticism which was the key element of McQueen's work. An event was held on 20th May " Mcqueen for a Night" which showcased his works, history and inspirations. And if its McQueen, People sure would dress up and dress up good... And I am glad i was there to click all these cool looking people...  


Ben, is an NYU student and was at the Met to attend the event. I like the drapy styling of the outfit. especially the fact that he did not overdo it and kept it simple yet chic through the color black. The sneakers of course adds an unexpected punch to the whole outfit... Brilliant... 





Iris is a Parson student and a friend of mine. The Shirt is designed and made by herself. The combination of sheer and  non sheer fabric makes the shirt look very interesting, specially the motif designed by her for the non sheer fabric. The drapy pleated pants and 'Cherry' colored shoes which were simply gorgeous made the outfit look very sexy...






I never realized that Parson's design department is that creative and chic. They do know how to churn out creative minds!! . The above two looks were designed by 'Sophomore' fashion design students. These guys did an amazing job with the designing, styling and look of the garment. What I particularly liked about the designs were the prints, construction and shape. They have the same tension filled romanticism which I like about Mcqueen's collection... Kudos!!...  


Marie is a Fashion History Professor at Parsons... She sure knows the history, present and future of fashion. I had her on my blog before also, and I adore the way she styles her self. I wish I could had taken her class...





Nick, Berjheny and the Louis Vuitton's... 




Marianna is an established Fashion designer and has a label under the name of 'Evigheden'. She is also a Parson's graduate. 
The outfit clearly speaks of the design aesthetics that the designer would be having. The asymmetric pattern and layering makes the outfit look very creative and chic. Asymmetric designs according to me are hard to handle and create, but she has done an amazing job. Loved the yellow zipper detail...
