My day 4 in London was especially wonderful because it was a full day of my favorite designer, Alexander McQueen! We made way to the V&A museum in London where we were going to experience the Alexander McQueen Exhibit. As we made our way inside the staff reminded us no pictures. Of course I have no idea what that means so I got a couple in and my luck got in trouble for it. The exhibit is unreal. I got the chills, started crying, and was overwhelmed with how amazing it was. I took a couple of snapshots of the his pieces which are below and almost got kicked out for it. It was well worth it though--his work was and is extraordinary. I highly recommend this exhibit if anyone is going to London anytime soon! Speaking of which, everyone has to go to Brick lane. This street/market is one of the most exciting places I witnessed in London. There are so many interesting things and people all around. The art and items sold or seen are unbelievable and I recommend strolling through this part of London. Finally, our last thing on the agenda in London was the Alexander McQueen Play. This play was lovely! *british accent* It gives you perspective on how McQueen thought, what he was like, and it ties into understanding him as a person. I thought they did a wonderful job at portraying him and his work. I was able to meet the cast afterward which I was very excited about. Dianna Agron, who play Quinn in Glee, was very sweet and not only did she just take pictures with the fans but she talked to each of them for awhile. I thought that was really cool; so you could say I made another famous friend on this trip! After this long day I was on an Alexander McQueen high and I packed my things because my class and I had an early morning train to Paris. London was truly beautiful and I can't wait to go back!
Stay tuned to see how my Paris experience went!
