Alexander McQueen

Nihilism 1994  Nihilism: “Life is without objective meaning, purpose, or intrinsic value.”

tumblr_mr6736pXR91rllxbgo4_400

For his first staged runway show, Lee McQueen presented models that appeared to have been victims of a car wreck, or in the eyes of some reviewers, abuse. They walk down the runway spattered in what appears to be blood or dirt, and wear pants cut so low on the hip that they reveal the top of the models’ bottoms

Highland Rape 1995   info Highland Rape,” which introduced the world not only to the designer’s trademark bumster pants, but also to his fierce national pride. The models’ torn garments and bloodied bodies ignited a fury, but this was no endorsement of rape, it was an exploration of Scotland’s turbulent history with England.

Dante 1996 Dante was shown in a candle-lit church in Spitalfields, London with a skeleton seated front row. Beauty and blasphemy were woven throughout this wide-ranging collection  AMcQ experimented with denim and Victoriana, tropes that he would return to again and again.

La Poupee 1997 The Doll. Inspired by the artist Hans Bellmer, who fetishistically rearranged toy dolls, McQueen experimented with proportion and, more disturbingly, trussed the models in various metal restraints.

Creating an art piece 1999 This show was inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement, and it ended with the model Shalom Harlow rotating on a turntable, wearing a white dress, being spray-painted by two industrial robots. Shalom Harlow trained as a ballerina. It is often said that the inspiration behind the collection was the dying swan

Diagnosing and Responding to Student Writing

A‐Assignment The writing demonstrates an understanding of the expectations and requirements of the assignment.

F‐Focus The writing consistently serves a main point or arguable thesis.

O‐Organization The writing should have sections that function as a beginning, middle, and end. While not all types of writing have an introduction and conclusion, sections should build on previous information and continually return to the main points of the paper.

S‐Support The writing contains evidence that supports the main point and any argumentative claims. Some examples of support are personal anecdote, verifiable research, and logical reasoning.

P‐Proofreading The writing is “polished” and free of surface‐level errors.

Distinctly Californian: Modernism in Textiles and Fashion

California sportswear industry grew from modest beginnings in 1930 into a mass-market fashion leader in men’s wear and a strong player in women’s wear.

“What Makes a fabric modern? Essentially that it is created in terms of today, with materials of today, within a whole set of conditioning factors.  Chief of these are function, architecture, and related textures”.

Dorothy Wright Liebes, 1939
