Exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London
I just bought my tickets to attend the Alexander McQueen exhibit, Savage Beauty in London!! To say I am excited is an understatement. I am over the top beside myself! I am an Alexander McQueen fanatic. He is my muse, my inspiration, my spirit guide. I own and have read every book written on him. My design aesthetic and illustration style is influenced by him. My dream is to attend Central Saint Martins and my goal is to be an Executive in his company someday. Now just to get the attention of Sarah Burton!! I know I am only one of thousands of designers who likely claim the same thing. I also ground myself in the reality that there will only be one Alexander McQueen. But his life, and his contribution to the world of fashion really means something to me. It is what gets me up in the morning, and what I think about before I go to bed at night. Thank you Alexander McQueen. @WorldMcQueen
Below are just some examples of McQueen’s influence on my designs:

#Justin Orlick 4th Annual Flying Solo Fashion Show opening
This year’s Flying Solo: Thinking Outside of the Box Fashion Show sponsored by my high school was as amazing success! We had participation from many professional and emerging designers from Philadelphia to New York City including Pamela Ptak, Daniel Silverstein, Bianca-Rachelle, BlckBts and Agashi to name a few. But one of my favorites this year were the dresses provided to us from Emmy winning television star, #Carson Kressley! The easy to wear maxi dresses from his Love, Carson? Spring collection are perfection. Thanks Carson for your support. You rock!
