This spring the V&A will present the retrospective of one of the most well known fashion designers in the world: Lee Alexander McQueen.
Savage Beauty was first staged at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2011. Curated by Andrew Bolton, the exhibition attracted over 650,000 visitors in three months – a record for a fashion exhibition at the museum. Now on display in London at the Victoria & Albert Museum, Savage Beauty is the first retrospective of Alexander McQueen’s work in Europe. Curated by Claire Wilcox and designed by Sam Gainsbury, the exhibition at the V&A is a home-coming for the London-born designer, and the largest showcase of McQueen’s work to date; featuring previously, garments and accessories that take in everything from his 1992 MA graduate collection to his unfinished Autumn/Winter 2010 collection, in a museum that was a source of inspiration for the designer.
The event will take place from 14 March 2015 until 2 August 2015 at Victoria and Albert Museum, in London.
