Alexander McQueen at Harvey Nichols

For all the things that have made me regret not living in New York, missing the 'Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty' exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is the biggest so far. I was, for a while rather jealous of you lucky New Yorkers enjoying our London-grown genius, but then Harvey Nichols came to the rescue. In conjunction with the New York part of the exhibition, the department store showed several classic, dramatic designs in its windows up until the end of last month. This prompted my first ever trip to Harvey Nick's while in London to see a production of Much Ado About Nothing. The clothes were stunning, and all the better for a lovely amount of afternoon sunshine.

But if you do not live in New York or London, or perhaps just missed out when they were on display, do not despair! I took several shots which, though I say so myself, look pretty good. I'd apologise for the reflections in the glass, but I actually think it adds something - especially in the ones where Knightsbridge's towering architecture seems to merge into the models. Enjoy!

These windows are so beyond gorgeous, and I'm so sad to not be able to make it to the MET this summer!
