So my trip down to New York was wonderful. The Alexander McQueen show was as fantastic as I knew it would be, massive crowds not withstanding. At least I got to view beautiful Asian art along the way. Seeing these garments up close just reinforced the beauty and unmatched craftsmanship that I saw on the Metropolitan's website. I am sure that each of the hundreds of visitors to this show feels the same sadness and loss at the death of this brilliant designer. His legacy is a repertoire of rare imagination. I'm so very fortunate that I had the opportunity to view these collections in the flesh.
