LCF's Fashion Space Gallery unveils
Alexander McQueen make-up exhibition

Fashion Space Gallery, located at London College of Fashion, has announced the launch of Warpaint: Alexander McQueen and Make-Up, the first ever exhibition to explore McQueen’s catwalk make-up. Coinciding with the V&A’s major retrospective Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, the exhibition will run from 30 April to 7 August 2015 and aims to unravel the process and inspirations behind the collections by examining key beauty looks developed by Val Garland, Peter Philips, Topolino and Sharon Dowsett. On display will be a total of 22 looks from 13 collections which have been grouped into three central themes: Amplified, where facial features are obscured and exaggerated; Deviated, where make-up goes beyond the traditional areas and covers other parts of the bod; and Stripped, where the subtle look intensifies the meaning of the collection. Additionally, visitors are also able to see themselves in select McQueen make-up looks, through Holition’s specially created app, ‘FACE’. Central to the exhibition space will be a studio environment hosting an extensive programme of masterclasses, talks and demonstrations. The events schedule will be announced shortly. A press preview will take place on 29 April (see DIARY dates).
