Was lucky enough to get a before opening hours tour of the Alexander McQueen exhibition at the V&A. It's stunning.
McQueen was clearly a creative genius. Able to take random moments of inspiration and turn them into a rich supply of ideas, enough to fill a collection, a show, all the marketing, and much more.
Able to give those ideas deep meaning, so that you could enjoy the clothes just as clothes (and lots of them you could actually wear down the shops) or you could keep digging and probably still be finding stuff weeks in. And then he did that every six months. If you talk about "storytelling" you should go and learn something.
All that and he seemed to have a very clear sense of purpose. A huge drive to make things and change things.
And if you're not bothered by fashion, it's worth going for the exhibition design.
You should go*. Everyone says it's sold out, but Poach pointed out you can still get tickets during the day.
* Not you Russell. This review will do for you.
