Alexander McQueen has revealed it is in talks with London venues to bring the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition to London.
The exhibition, which displays catwalk collections and clothing archives from the late British designer Lee Alexander McQueen, opened in May at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. It closed in mid-August after having its run extended by a week, pulling in more than half a million visitors.
A petition to bring the exhibition back to the UK, which was launched online by Grazia fashion editor-at-large Melanie Rickley, has attracted almost 2,000 names.
A statement from the design house said: “Alexander McQueen appreciates the huge amount of interest the public has shown towards the Savage Beauty exhibition. We have been in discussion with a number of major venues in London for some time now, however nothing has been finalised.”
McQueen, who created designs for both his eponymous label and for Givenchy, committed suicide in February 2010.
