«Alexander McQueen revealed the magic that comes from putting our crystal into the hands of cutting-edge talent,» said Nadja Swarovski, who credits the late designer for putting her great-great-grandfather’s company back on the fashion map. «As soon as McQueen used [our crystals] we were inundated with requests. Everyone wanted to use it!» — Continue Reading BelowMore than 20 Swarovski crystal-embellished pieces created by McQueen will feature in the V&A’s upcoming «Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty» exhibition canada goose , the first major retrospective of the designer’s work to be presented in Europe.From a glistening hooded top made from Swarovski crystals in 1999 to the Philip Treacy hat he sent down the runway fastened with towering feathered wings rising from a bird’s nest filled with seven Swarovski crystal eggs in 2006, to the 2009 Bell Jar dress covered in large Swarovski pieces so heavy the bespoke mannequin holding it had to be reinforced, McQueen’s experimental crystal-encrusted pieces were as much objects of art as they were daring fashion statements. Courtesy of Swarovski — Continue Reading Below»When he first picked up our crystal mesh, he immediately understood how to use it in a really revolutionary and creative way , by draping it around the body, pairing it with a sheer silk, and also turning it into a stunning glittering hood for his spring/summer 1999 collection,» explained Swarovski, who was first introduced to the late designer by Isabella Blow that same year. «[Isabella] had such a talent for spotting the next big thing, as well as connecting people, and we went together to Lee McQueen’s little studio in Islington. The rest is history…»Swarovski says the most important thing McQueen did was to help the company (which launched in 1895 in Austria) reconnect with its heritage in haute couture, which began when founder Daniel Swarovski began traveling to Paris every season to meet with early couturiers Charles Frederick Worth and Jeanne Lanvin. «McQueen helped us think about how to do that in the modern world,» Swarovski admitted.Courtesy of Swarovski»Savage Beauty,» which spans McQueen’s career from his 1992 MA graduate collection to his posthumous autumn/winter 2010 collection, premiered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2011, where it was one of the museum’s most visited shows. London’s exhibition, which runs from 14 March to 2 August 2015, has been edited and expanded for the V&A’s large galleries, and will feature 30 additional garments, including some rare early pieces lent by private individuals and collectors such as Katy England and Annabelle Neilson, as well as pieces from the Isabella Blow Collection and the House of Givenchy. Bringing the drama and spectacle that characterized McQueen’s runway shows back to London, the town where he grew up, studied, and established his global fashion brand, «Savage Beauty» aims to highlight McQueen’s ability to push the limits of craftsmanship and boundaries of creativity.»He developed innovative, new applications for our products, and put them back on the map for other designers, like Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte, who now continue to push fashion forward,» said Swarovski.
