Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition to come to the UK!

Submitted by on Tuesday, 30 August 2011 | One Comment

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!

    It is wonderful to see that the McQueen camp is supporting the exhibition to travel, beginning with London. Certainly the option of having this travel to other cities can’t be far behind although like in this case it’s certain that they cannot disclose anything yet until plans are confirmed.

    McQueen is our generation’s Dior regarding creativity while respecting and integrating history into his design. His creative volume is in line with that of Picasso. During his life, McQueen had conveyed to the media his desire to spread his vision throughout the world, taking his collection to the public via a live streaming broadcast. He mused the concept of showcasing his collections via hologram stations the world after enjoying success with such technology demonstrated in the “Widows of Culloden” presentation.

    Let’s support not only the exhibition to come home but more so to have it travel. There are many who should enjoy the honor of seeing the greatness of another British citizen.
