Urban Renewal by Mari Santos We're usually kinda "meh" about most T-shirt surgeries because we're just can't get into the hack'em, slash'em sartorial school of thought.

Except that it would probably be illegal. Which is kind of a bummer. Her ethos: "Taking something old, frumpy and ill fitting and making it into something new." Santos will be joining some 20 other designers to work on Urban Outfitter's Urban Renewal line.

Savage Beauty So we finally went to the McQueen exhibition at the Met. We woke up early, and like everybody, we waited in line for an hour or two. It was so crowded inside. Haute Design by Sarah Klassen: Graceful Gowns by Papilio I came across these delicate and sweet gowns the other day, and thought you might enjoy them as well! Photographed prettily by Marino Danilova, these dresses offer such a dreamy look...I haven't shared too many wedding gowns in the past, but I find I greatly enjoy those that are so special and unique, don't you? I couldn't begin to choose a favorite, though, I'm really liking the lightly gold toned dress as well as the detailed neckline and waistline of the gown featured on the left in the last image. Do you have a favorite? {Just in Case} A few features this week, to click...

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty review – superficially magnificent The V&A’s retrospective of the career of Alexander McQueen, Savage Beauty, began its life at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, where it was a huge hit. Expanded and edited to talk a little more to the city where the designer (1969-2010) was born and learned his craft, it will doubtless be an even bigger smash in London. At the early-morning preview I attended, various fashion editors and PR types could be seen wandering its rooms almost listlessly, as if under a spell.
