Warpaint: Alexander McQueen and Make-Up

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?

 

When In London – P.S.

While in London for work, I took time out to visit the Paul Smith exhibit at the Design Museum. After a long, rather picturesque taxi ride along the London Bridge, I finally made it to the venue and I was immediately transported into Paul Smith’s world.
