This exhibition was the best exhibition that I have seen. Yes, quite a grandiose statement, but really I just loved every moment. It was an emotionally charged experience and engaged every sense. Each room presented different collections with one massive room in the middle. Everyone stood in awe in the room, looking at each piece of creativity. It was also interesting to read about the inspiration behind some of the pieces. He was just such a creative person who could explore various ideas and concepts. It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it:) If you are in London, make sure you visit this exhibition. It is a MUST!
Below is a short video which gives a taster of what to expect.

My McQueen jacket
Speaking of Alexander McQueen, in 2009 I made this McQueen pattern for my sisters 21st birthday. We blogged about it on Fickle Sense a few years back. It was a challenge to sew this complicated design, but I think it worked out pretty well. You can find the pattern on the website Showstudio. It is downloadable here.
Has anyone else given this pattern a go?
If you are interested in learning more about McQueen, I would recommend the documentary "McQueen and I".
