Alexander McQueen’s Exhibition, Savage Beauty, might head home.
Alexander McQueen’s Exhibition, Savage Beauty, has come to an end. The fashion spectacular took place at the New York Metropolitan Museum and was a successful event, attracting more than 650,00 guests. This figure is comparable to two major displays of the past hosted by The Met – the Mona Lisa exhibition (1963) and The Treasures of Tutankhamun (1978).
The exhibition was created by The Costume Institute. The haunting display is a celebration of Mr McQueen’s life and his visionary interpretation of fashion. The hundred plus ensembles are displayed in a beautifully curated selection ranging from his 1992 postgraduate collection to his final runway show which took place after his unexpected death in February 2010.
Melanie Rickey, Fashion Editor of Grazia UK is now urging people to get the exhibition to London, the home of the Alexander McQueen label, and where the founder himself was born, raised and studied.
