McQueen Exhibit at the MET

Yesterday I had the immense pleasure of visiting the Alexander McQueen exhibit, Savage Beauty, at the MET in NYC.

Oh My!! I was drooling, it was amazing! Here is a link that gives a great overview of the exhibit.

Seeing it in person was such a treat and the pleasure was doubled because I had my brother Willie with me to share in the fun. My creative juices were on overflow. McQueen was truly an amazing designer and artist, it is unfathomable to me that he committed suicide at the age of 40.

I had to purchase the exhibit book for my sewing room library, it is just packed full of great photo raps of his amazing works and is sure to inspire my creativity when I feel it lacking.

The evening was such a pleasant one :) the MET with my brother, dinner and drinks with him and his lovely girlfriend at a French bistro and than a nice walk by Gracie mansion and along the East river to see the lights of governors island, the triborough bridge and queens.

Now I am stuck in queens at the LaGuardia airport Marriott... Between the weather and the air traffic my flight was canceled and I am on the first flight out in the morning at 6am. Keeping my fingers crossed that the weather holds.
