The Audrey Collection – a must see exhibition!

If you’re in Chelsea this month (or even if you’re not!) you MUST go and see the exhibition showing at Proud Chelsea, The Audrey Collection by Bob Willoughby. The collection of photographs, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, captures all kinds of moments from Hepburn’s life – from stunning images from her movies to frank, everyday situations. She is such a style icon, it would be criminal to miss it!

Isn’t she beautiful!

Oh, Alexander!

Oh wow, doesn’t this exhibition look fabulous? The recently opened Alexander McQueen exhibition ‘Savage Beauty’ is on at the Metropolitan Museum, NYC till the end of July. Some of the spaces were inspired by McQueen’s first atelier in Hoxton, (it actually reminds me of All Saints), others have a futuristic vibe. Just like McQueen – always contrasting opposites. The clothes surround catwalk videos, eccentric hats, phenomenal shoes.. a complete feast for the eyes.

I am completely jealous it’s not showing here in London. The website is great though, especially as it shows an 8 minute video of the whole exhibition. I hope this post gives you a great feel for what the UK is missing!

“I want to be honest about the world that we live in, and sometimes my political persuasions come through in my work. Fashion can be really racist, looking at the clothes of other cultures as costumes. . . . That’s mundane and it’s old hat. Let’s break down some barriers.” – McQueen.

“I’m a romantic schizophrenic” – McQueen.
