And for all of you still thinking whether to go or not when they stop by Hamburg and/or just for inspiration I collected some impressions while being there.
The museum actually bought these three pieces from McQueens Angels& Demons collection, they are the center pieces and presented right in the center of the room. And they are beautiful, I wish I could have the dress in the middle. Dreams.
Aside of that they presented several other creations of McQueen in combination with other designer garments as Vivienne Westwood to show where his inspiration maybe came from.
On the two big walls in the back of the room the museum decided to project clips from his fashion shows via a beamer, so the visitor did not only see more than the presented pieces but could also imagine himself at one of the catwalk shows thanks to the size of the images...
Nonetheless I believe the exhibition is still worth a visit, because how often will you see original McQueen pieces that close...?
And I learnt that not every room of the museum was that depressing. By purchasing a ticket (adult 8 Euro, students 5 Euro) you can visit all the other exhibitions and from next week the redoing of the design department will be reopened, so I will definitely go back there. And maybe, I will again stand in front of the angel dress and wish that I could own it...
