This paper doll tribute to the fashion superstar recaptures the circus-like atmosphere of McQueen's sensational shows, which combined avant-garde design with technology and performance art. Includes 3 dolls and more than 30 costumes.
It's a fact that fashion designer Alexander McQueen was a descendant of one of the Salem women accused and hanged of witchery, Elizabeth Howe. He paid homage to her in a 2007 collection, "In Memory of Elizabeth Howe, Salem 1692."
The Salem Witch Trials: Reckoning and Reclaiming (October 7, 2022 - January 22, 2023) explores how, even after 300 years, Salem’s witch trials remain a defining example of intolerance and injustice in American history. The extraordinary events of 1692-3 led to the deaths of 25 innocent people, the vast majority of whom were women. The exhibition includes tangible fragments from the past that illuminate the real lives of Salem’s residents: those accused of witchcraft, their accusers, and those who defended them against legal charges, risking their own lives and reputations in the process.
