The Hot Ticket: Alexander McQueen – Savage Beauty
Campaigns were launched, petitions were signed and many an over-excited rumour was spread, but all of this was not in vain, for the V&A has announced that it will play host to Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty next year.
One of the all-time top ten most popular exhibitions at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art - where it was originally displayed in 2011 – the retrospective spans the late designer’s entire career, from his 1992 MA graduate show to the unfinished AW10 collection.
Reflecting on the poignancy of hosting the exhibition, Director of the V&A, Martin Roth, said: “Lee Alexander McQueen was brought up in London, studied here and based his globally successful McQueen fashion brand here – by staging the exhibition at the V&A it feels like we are bringing his work home.”
Not scheduled to open until Saturday 14th March 2015, we might have almost a year to wait but there’s no time like the present so seize the opportunity to book tickets now. In the meantime, why not invest in a few key Alexander McQueen pieces? Shop our favourites below.
Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty runs from Saturday 14th March until Sunday 19th July 2015 at the V&A, London. In partnership with Swarovski. Supported by American Express.
