I’ll never forget the day I heard Alexander McQueen had died. I have several books, including the original Savage Beauty book from the NY show. I for one can not wait to see the show in 2015.
McQueen was a legend, a visionary and his early career hugely inspired me to follow my heart and go into fashion. Highly trained and unbelievably creative, he left a huge hole in the industry and I for one will never not miss his presence in fashion. I have included a link to the fashion show that changed everything for me when I was a teen.
The V&A is delighted to announce that it will present Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty in London in spring 2015. The first and largest retrospective of the late designer’s work to be presented in Europe, the exhibition will showcase McQueen’s visionary body of work. Spanning his 1992 MA graduate collection to his unfinished A/W 2010 collection, McQueen’s designs will be presented with the dramatic staging and sense of spectacle synonymous with his runway shows.
Lisa Gregg, Vice President of Consumer Products & Experiences, American Express, said: “We are delighted to be a part of this unique retrospective. Our support of Alexander McQueen spans many years over which time we had the privilege of supporting his meteoric rise from cutting edge British designer to global household name. As one of the sponsors of the 2011 New York debut of Savage Beauty, we are particularly excited about the homecoming of this truly special and inspirational exhibition.”
