Honoring McQueen…

November 10, 2010

Nearly a year after the Iconoclastic fashion genius, Alexander McQueen, passed away, the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is revealing Alexander McQueen’s work up close and personal to the public with a new exhibit.

The Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit will be launched at the Costume Institute Gala on May 2nd, and be on display from May 4th to July 31th. It will include designs from McQueen’s entire career, including archives dating back to his graduate show at Central Saint Martins to his final collection from earlier this year.

CEO of the McQueen label Jonathan Akeroyd said:

“We felt it would be a great opportunity to show Lee’s work and his incredible contribution to the world of fashion and art. It felt like the right thing to do. Lee loved the museum. It will give us a great opportunity to show Lee’s work and the Alexander McQueen brand to a much broader community. It’s the greatest tribute and important for his legacy, but it’s also an exciting new chapter in the history of the brand.”

This definitely will be an exhibit to see…
