“Celebrating the extraordinary creative talent of one of the most innovative designers of recent times, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty will be the first and largest retrospective of McQueen’s work to be presented in Europe.”
In 2011, the “Savage Beauty” exhibition was an astonishing success! In three months, over 660.000 people visited the New York’s Metropolitan Museum to admire the creations of the late British fashion designer. It was so popular that the museum extended the show for an extra week. In the end, the “Savage Beauty” became the eight most popular exhibition in the Met’s 142 year history.
“London’s where I was brought up. It’s where my heart is and where I get my inspiration.” – Alexander McQueen, January 2000
“I am thrilled to announce that the V&A will bring this wonderful exhibition to London to celebrate the extraordinary creative talent of one of the most innovative designers of recent times. 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.”
If you don’t want to miss this amazing exhibition you can buy your tickets now! “Savage Beauty” will be curated by V&A’s senior fashion curator Claire Wilcox and Andrew Bolton, who worked on the widely successful show at the Metropolitan Museum of New York.
