My spring holiday kicked off with a trip to London. I stayed there for a week- a couple of days on my own and then five days with a friend. We had an amazing time- toast and fresh fruit salads in the morning, watching Orange Is The New Black (which surprisingly enough has now become a series I really like, although I was skeptical about it at first) in the evening, exploring different parts of the city during the day. While Brick Lane and the entirety of Camden are charming in their own ways, I fall in love with South Kensington and its neoclassical architecture every time I go there. This time I ended up in that part of town because I was eager to finally visit the Alexander McQueen 'Savage Beauty' exhibition held at the V&A. It is no secret that I've been admiring McQueen's work since I was twelve. I remember showing my friend the collection entitled "The Horn of Plenty" back in 2009, and while that friend of mine was having none of it, I was going crazy over the avant-garde silhouettes, the theatrics and the whole concept of the show. I'm pretty sure that was the turning point for me- the moment I realized I, too, want to be in fashion, creating art in the form of garments, but also putting on a show for people to watch and enjoy. The exhibition was inspiring and absolutely stunning, to say the least. It felt unreal to see McQueen's work up close, I wanted to soak up as much of that breathtaking atmosphere as I could, it truly was splendid. One of my favorite parts had to be the hologram of Kate Moss, floating in the air dressed in a swirly-fabric gown. I always admired McQueen's wish to incorporate modern technology into his shows. It gave them a futuristic-romantic feel. All in all, this exhibition made my stay in London even more amazing. I already miss it so much!
