Warpaint: Alexander McQueen and Make-Up
A new satellite exhibition coinciding with the major retrospective on Savage Beauty, is the first ever exhibition to explore the designer’s catwalk make-up.
It aims to unravel the process and inspirations behind the collections by exploring key looks developed by McQueen’s most trusted make-up artists through three recurring themes.
- Amplified, where facial features are obscured and exaggerated.
- Deviated, where make-up goes beyond the traditional areas and covers other parts of the body, and
- Stripped, where the look is so subtle it intensifies the meaning of the collection.
Whats even more exciting is the exhibition also explores make-up digitally, working with digital creative studio Holition, visitors will be able to try-on a few select looks in a specially created app, using Holition’s new ‘FACE’ technology
I would love to take a flight to London, just to experience this exhibition – wouldn’t you?
