Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition to come to the UK!
Notorious fashion designer Alexander McQueen was born and raised in England, so it seems only right that his hugely successful Savage Beauty exhibition, which is currently being shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, is set to come home to the UK.
After the designers death on February 11, 2010, the Savage Beauty exhibition was unveiled as a tribute to his life and work and has been shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute since earlier this year. It has become the MET’s most viewed exhibition ever with over 650,000 visitors and it’s run was even extended due to high demand.
Of course, fans from all over the world and keen to catch a glimpse of McQueen’s work and thousands signed a petition to bring the popular exhibition to London. It has now been revealed by McQueen’s representatives that the fan’s wishes have been granted and the exhibition will infact be coming to London. In a statement, representatives 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. Please be assured that an official announcement will be made the moment we confirm our plans for London.”
When the exhibition eventually arrives in London, there is no doubt that visitor numbers will be outstanding. It could become one of London’s biggest ever exhibitions as the city sees millions of new tourists every single day. Of course, we’ll let you know when the venue is confirmed as we can’t wait to McQueen in all it’s glory!
