Okay, let’s get this started. There’s something that’s been tormenting me lately; not being able to attend to the Savage Beauty exhibition in London, pretty much because I’m quite far from there, Google says 5225.8 Miles away.

A bit more than a year ago I went to the “Isabella Blow: The Fashion Galore” in Somerset House London, an exhibition dedicated to Lee’s muse, it was one of the most relevant and incredible hours for me as a fashion lover (so far), walking around the place was like a dream, being surrounded by McQueen’s including some of his first school projects.

There was also some Philip Treacy, Hussein Chalayan and Julien Macdonald creations… all of them breathtaking. What I felt there was indescriptible, the rest of the people doing the tour seemed as astonished as me, it was like a religious congregation was taken for a tour in god’s house or something like that!
The energy is difficult to explain as well, at least I felt like I was on ecstasy… what I want to say is that it was an incomparable experience, and for what I’ve been looking online Savage Beauty is bigger , so I can’t imagine what it would feel like to be there. In the Fashion Galore photos weren’t allowed, and even though I had the chance to snap a few shots I felt it would be disrespectful to do so, fortunately I’ve found a few online.
So for the people who’s miserable for not being able to attend, they made an amazing website where they share a bit of the experience, grab a comfy seat, make sure there wont be any distractions, and let yourself get into that savage world McQueen left as a legacy.
