#Fashion exhibition 'Alexander McQueen. Inspirations' from 23 December 2011 until 6 May 2012 at the MKG Hamburg
The MKG Hamburg (museum for arts and crafts) presents from 23 Dec 2011 until 6 May 2012 'Alexander McQueen. Inspirations' with special focus on three pieces from his final collection FW2010 such as an asymmetrical cocktail dress showing a painting from the late Middle Ages (around 1442, from the Altar of the City Patrons by Stefan Lochner, Cologne Cathedral) and golden feathers; possibly the last dress Alexander McQueen has designed.
