“You’ve got to know the rules to break them. That’s what I’m here for, to demolish the rules but to keep the tradition.” Alexander McQueen


       Jewelry designer Catherine Angiel is known for the edge in her designs, and her reckless abandon of the rules. She used black diamonds back when they were entirely unpopular and continues to create truly original pieces. It’s only fitting that one of her favorite designers and sources of inspiration is the late, great, Alexander McQueen.
     Through August 7th, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is hosting the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit. Waiting lines span from forty five minutes to two hours, but it is well worth it.
The exhibit starts with his first collection, in a gallery called “The Romantic Mind,” and continues in a maze of galleries that demonstrate McQueen’s self proclaimed “romantic schizophrenia.”While the exhibit is not necessarily arranged linearly, it does a stunning job of demonstrating the contrasts that played in his work and his love for nature and art. One of the most memorable sections is the display of his final and incomplete line, unofficially titled “Angels and Demons” in a tall golden casket part way through the exhibit.
     Filled with haunting couture, quotes from the designer himself, drawings, videos, and even a hologram, this event is one that any fashion or art lover would not want to miss.

Located at: 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10028
