Terrific for students of fashion.
on 21 September 2017
The lenticular cover of a portrait of Alexander McQueen changing by degree into a skull is a stunning piece of book design. This is the book that was produced for the Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition in New York. Clothes are shown on lifeless white painted manequins and mostly photographed in black and white. In a way it is a pity that this book wasn’t expanded and re-edited to include the changes which were made for the”Savage Beauty’ exhibition at the V&A London. It would have been good to see working notes or drawings of how the designs started out. Terrifuc book for students of fashion.
