That’s right, McQueen is coming home! Following one of the most successful runs ever recorded at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition is coming to London. Altogether now – yay! Grazia editor Melanie Rickey broke the news on her ‘Fashion Editor at Large’ blog, and although no details have yet been confirmed the people at McQueen HQ told Rickey that they “have been in discussion with a number of major venues in London for some time now” to host the fashion exhibition.
“Alexander McQueen appreciates the huge amount of interest the public has shown towards the Savage Beauty exhibition,” they added. “Please be assured that an official announcement will be made the moment we confirm our plans for London.”
A petition to bring the exhibition to London, which has over 2000 signatures so far, seems to have been successful, with the exhibition set take place sometime during 2013 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the McQueen fashion house. It is rumoured to be held at one of selection of major London venues, including Somerset House, The Truman Brewery and Battersea Power Station.
Originally hailing from London, Alexander McQueen has been praised for his controversial and innovative fashion designs for many years, and even more so since his tragic death in 2010. It seems fitting that the exhibition should return to the place where it all started and we’re sure fashion fans will flock in their thousands to get a look of some of McQueen’s exquisite designs up close.
What would be the perfect venue for Savage Beauty?
