An Alexander McQueen Retrospective
V&A Museum, London: 14 March – 2 August 2015
LONDON A fitting homage to the meteoric career of game-changing designer Alexander McQueen, this major retrospective saw more than half a million people flock to the New York Metropolitan Museum in only three months. Returning this year to McQueen’s home city of London, Savage Beauty is a celebration of a rebellious visionary. He started his career at London’s Savile Row at just 16 years of age and was appointed Head Designer at Givenchy when he was 25. Wreathed in the tragedy of his early death in 2010, this V&A Museum exhibition showcases McQueen’s life's work, ranging from his theatrical costumes for West End shows to his 10-piece graduation collection from St. Martin’s College. Savage Beauty is a moving tribute to a lost genius.
