Alexander McQueen had his say.

Those are the words that hit me about the fashion designer who took his own life more than a year ago as I made my way from one room to another at the “Savage Beauty” exhibit that opened at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York last week.

From eerie Tim Burton-inspired dark costumes to meticulous Japanese prints re-imagined with exquisite tailoring, his legacy struck me as one of outsized artistry and fearlessness in flaunting form and vision.

“I want to be the purveyor of a certain silhouette or a way of cutting so that when I am dead and gone people will know that the 21st century was started by Alexander McQueen,” reads the McQueen quote at the exhibit entrance.
