Breaking news here for Londoners. “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty,” the show that broke every record in the book in New York, is on its way to London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. While the show itself won’t be staged until the spring of 2015, tickets for the event will actually go on sale from this Friday at 10am. We’ll just say this – expect a sell out. This show was tremendous and all fans and followers of fashion should attempt to score a ticket, no matter the cost. The beauty of McQueen garments over the years, present all in one place, is almost overwhelming. He was truly one of the most talented designers of our time, a man who left us too soon.
It is fitting of course that the show would return to the place where the magic began. Lee McQueen was raised and studied in London, and the brand itself was born here. The minute the first show opened at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2011, Londoners wondered if we would one day see the show return to the place where it all began. Finally, the day has been earmarked and tickets are here. Do not let this pass you by.
Now, Victoria & Albert, how about doing something in the style of the Met Gala for the opening here in London?
