Alexander McQueen: Dress No.13 Spring/Summer 1999

Alexander McQueen (British, 1969–2010) Dress No. 13, spring/summer 1999 White cotton muslin spray-painted black and yellow with underskirt of white synthetic tulle

Greetings beautiful people

So here is the latest bear illustration inspired by the Alexander McQueen exhibition “Savage Beauty” currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

I saw and thoroughly read through the catalouge a few months ago and was amazed.  The late great Alexander McQueen was an artist of the highest caliber. I believe what most impressed me about his creations, was the extent of his imagination.  This illustration based on the dress pictured below, was a plain yet beautifully talored dress by McQueen.  He had the model walk down the runway onto a circular platform in between two robotic arms.  Once the model was in place, the circular platform began to turn, the robotic arms activated and sprayed yellow and black paint all over the dress.  The resulting pattern was a specific work of art created in a most random environment.  Love it!

More illustrations to come

Till next time
