‘Alexander McQueen, Savage Beauty’
14th July, 2015
‘Alexander McQueen, Savage Beauty’ is the largest display of McQueen’s work to be shown in Europe. It features the greatest number of individual pieces designed by McQueen and his collaborators seen together in one place - in excess of 240 items including over 60 new pieces and ‘London’, an additional section unique to the V&A.
‘Savage Beauty’ was brought together by a team of designers and consultants, many of whom worked closely with McQueen to realise his notorious fashion shows. The exhibition draws on a range of re-mastered fashion show footage and audio spanning McQueen’s career. This retrospective captures McQueen’s legendary flair for showmanship and theatricality, and due to unprecedented public demand Savage Beauty is rapidly becoming the most popular exhibition the V&A has ever hosted.
