Alexander McQueen retrospective comes to London

The largest ever retrospective of the late designer Alexander McQueen will come to London’s Victoria & Albert Museum next spring.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty will span his work from his 1992 MA graduate collection to his unfinished autumn 2010 range

The original version of Savage Beauty at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York in 2011 was organised by the Costume Institute and became one of the museum’s top 10 most visited exhibitions.

Tickets to the V&A’s exhibition go on sale at 10am today (April 25).

V&A director Martin Roth said: “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.”

Sarah Burton, creative director at the design house Alexander McQueen, said: “Savage Beauty is a celebration of the most imaginative and talented designer of our time. Lee was a genius and a true visionary who pushed boundaries, challenged and inspired. He believed in creativity and innovation and his talent was limitless.”
