“ALEXANDER MCQUEEN:SAVAGE BEAUTY”, AN EXHIBITION CELEBRATING A GENIUS
Alexander McQueen: 'Horn of Plenty' . SUBTITLED 'EVERYTHING BUT THE KITCHEN SINK' . A PLAY BETWEEN A PROFOUND RESPECT FOR AND THE SUBVERSION OF THE HAUTE COUTURE TRADITION. The set features a pile of debris – everything from rubbish bags and crushed car parts to broken fairground horses and castaway chairs . The clothes themselves draw on haute couture signatures – Dior’s iconic hounds-tooth check, the elegance of Audrey Hepburn in Givenchy – and takes them apart at the seams.

I also love the retro sweets which bring a funky feel to the magazine which has connotations of childhood which for my audience the majority will be positive memories which is the kind of tone that I wish to convey through design.
