By Word of Mouth – an evening of Savage Beauty at the Victoria & Albert Museum
By Word of Mouth was recently asked to provide dinner for a very special, private view of ‘Alexander McQueen, Savage Beauty’ at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
Our client, whose company worked with Alexander McQueen for over a decade, hosted an evening of sheer elegance, giving guests the opportunity to explore, in private, an exhibition that has been widely acclaimed as being an extraordinary insight into the creative journey taken by this ground breaking designer.
The evening began with a drinks reception overlooked by the majestic sculptures of the Hintze Gallery. Canapes served included a chilli pumpkin souffle and herbed yellow fin tuna. Guests then enjoyed private tours of the exhibition, returning to the Hintze Gallery where, after a miraculously quick turn-around by the slick team of staff, they were greeted by a 90ft long, white dining table, stunning in its simplicity.
Dinner included a salad of whipped feta and grilled baby aubergine, fillet of beef and, as a final flourish of glamour, an intense Caraibe chocolate marquise with white chocolate feuilletine and mandarin sorbet.
This was an evening the team from By Word of Mouth will long remember as being a very special celebration of a great creative visionary.
