-McQ of Alexander McQueen has launched their own Official Tumblr with links to their Facebook, Twitter, and video sharing sites, YouTube and Vimeo. Welcome to social networking you dreaming masters of fashion, you! Photographer, Niall O'Brien took a trip of spontaneity with the world of McQ up the Western U.S. coast to create campaigns pairing small town scenery with raw imagery to create genius works of art and branding. ALSO -(old news, but,) Alexander McQueen - "Savage Beauty" was this year's Met Ball exhibit inspiration. The genius work of the late Alexander McQueen opened on May 4 (and will run until) July 11 at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Met Store even has tiny McQueenadillo ornaments, a book featuring the work displayed in the exhibit, "Savage Beauty", and other gifts. Must haves for any fan of the journey/work of Alexander McQueen!
UPDATE: After already having 150,000 visitors to the McQueen Met exhibit only one month into its' showing- the exhibit has been extended until August 7!! -Giving the world to get up close and personal with this genius work for almost one full month!
