Alexander Mcqueen - Mcqueen Exhibition To Move To London

Alexander McQueen's 'Savage Beauty' exhibition looks set to move to London.

The design house - which was set up by the fashion icon, who committed suicide in February 2010 -is in negotiations with some "major venues" in the UK capital as it looks to bring the display of the late British designer's work, which opened in May at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, to England.

A statement issued by the brand read: "Alexander McQueen appreciates the huge amount of interest the public has shown towards the 'Savage Beauty' exhibition.

"We have been in discussion with a number of major venues in London for some time now, however nothing has been finalised."

Fashion journalist Melanie Rickey started an online petition, which has attracted nearly 2,000 names, to get the display - which documents everything from the designer's graduate show to his final collection - brought over to the UK.

She said: "This isn't just my petition. I'm starting it on behalf of everyone who wants to see the exhibition in its home town.

"McQueen was from London and his designs were inspired by it, and I think the exhibition should be seen in situ. I'm talking to lots of people who believe we could make it more relevant here."

The exhibition was recently named the eighth most popular display in the Metropolitan Museum of Art's 141-year history.
