Savage Beauty, the Alexander McQueen retrospective that wowed New York in 2011 is finally almost In London. The exhibition will open in March 2015 at the V&A, marking the fifth anniversary of the legendary designer’s death, but most importantly it's a wonderful celebration of his life and work.
The exhibition provides a rare chance to see some of McQueen's hard to find early work, which will be on display. These pieces from the early 1990s – including his 1992 graduate collection ‘Jack the Ripper Stalks his Victims’, infamously snapped up by the late isabella Blow, an early champion – are incredibly rare. "He absorbed so many influences, in any one collection there were hundreds of ideas, hundreds of influences, all brought together," said Wilcox, and this is even true of his earliest work – like his Hitchcock-inspired SS95 collection 'The Birds', pieces of which will be featured.
