Is 11 months ahead really too soon to book for an exhibition?

Not if it is an opportunity to see the workmanship on this


and this


Alexander McQueen's "Savage Beauty" is coming to the V and A in March 2015 and I've booked my ticket.  I used to wonder what all the fuss was about with McQueen, until i went to Liberty's and tried on some of the jackets.  He was a master of his craft and it will be a joy to see the combination of the tailoring and the skills of the atelier staff with whom he worked.

  1. Think I'm with you on this one! Just got to try and decide what date I should pick. Who knows what will be happening this time next year! One of my assistants went on to work for McQueen, so I have had a little insight to some of the work. Though the working practices leave a little to be desired!

  2. Oooo thanks for this. Need to sort out my ticket too!!

  3. Yes - its far too organised to be booking this far ahead! I can understand why you would. though, looking at the photos! Will look forward to hearing all about it from you.....


Thanks for your comment. I love to read them, but can't always respond.
