Alexander Mcqueen - Alexander McQueen exhibition comes to London

Alexander McQueen will be honoured in a London exhibition next year.

The late British designer - famed for being Givenchy's creative director for before launching his own successful label - is due to be celebrated with the revival of popular US retrospective, 'Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty', which is heading to the V&A Museum from March 14 to July 19 2015.

Martin Roth, director of the V&A, said: ''I am thrilled to announce that the V&A will bring this wonderful exhibition to London to celebrate the extraordinary creative talent of one of the most innovative designers of recent times.

''Lee Alexander McQueen was brought up in London, studied here and based his globally successful McQueen fashion brand here - by staging the exhibition at the V&A it feels like we are bringing his work home.''

'Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty' was originally displayed at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2011.

It showcased the key milestones in his career, from his 1992 MA graduate collection to more recent pieces, and it is hoped the exhibition will continue to inspire future generations.

Claire Wilcox and Andrew Bolton are curating the London version, which has been adapted from the original.

Jonathan Akeroyd, chief executive officer of Alexander McQueen, added: ''Savage Beauty is a story telling of the most imaginative and talented designer of our time.

''We are incredibly proud as a house to be able to showcase Lee's visionary body of work in London as a celebration of his legacy and an inspiration to a future generation.''

McQueen's tragic death was announced on 11 February 2010, after his housekeeper found him hanging at his London home.
