Alexander McQueen: trunk show in Beirut & AMQ gallery in Shanghai

As a personal McQueen addict, and as someone who has worked with his brand in Lebanon, it always strikes a personal note when his name comes up.

I can still remember the day of his death as if it was yesterday. It is an amazing feeling for all McQueen fans to know that his work continues. Last week, on November 24, Alexander McQueen’s boutique in Lebanon hosted a trunk show that many celebrities and elite people attended. It showcased his latest avant garde and outrageous designs!

On the other side of the world, over here in Shanghai;  six chinese artists present portraits and reproductions of Alexander McQueen’s skull signature at James Cohan Gallery as a tribute to his genius works, a tribute to the designer who enchanted his audience with the exquisite collection and made stomachs lurch with the underlying menace that was shot through his work. The Gallery will be open till the 31st of December 2010. I will definitely visit this exhibition in the coming weeks and I’ll get back to you on it.

Here are some photos from the trunk show in Beirut:
