Savage Beauty at the V&A, March 14 - August 2, 2015

After its record-breaking run at New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2011, "Savage Beauty," the retrospective of the work of the late Alexander McQueen (previously here), is once again mounted, this time at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. It is quite appropriate that the show has returned to London, McQueen's hometown.

The show is now open and is set to close on August 2, 2015. But if the phenomenal response to the New York show is any indication (it was extended and the museum stayed open until midnight on regular operating days and opened its doors for special Monday viewings, a day most museums are closed) the V&A show might be around a little longer as well. If you are in London, do go... it's a spectacular chance to revisit McQueen's staggering genius.
