The legacy of the late Alexander McQueen will continue to live on, especially next summer! The Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art will be honoring the young designer’s memory with a retrospective exhibit that is slated to open to the public on May 4th, 2011. The 100-piece installation, titled Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, will examine’s McQueen’s career in fashion—from his graduate days in design school all the way up until his last collection shown last February.

Museum curator Andrew Bolton tells WWD: “[McQueen] really was one of the most provocative voices of the past 30 years in fashion. His catwalk presentations were outstanding and straddle art and fashion. We wanted to get across two elements—the spectacle of the runway presentations and the beauty of his craftsmanship.

    I fell in love with McQueen when I saw his Spring Resort or Pre Spring 2010. The maze legging with matching blazer. I must have starred at it for an hour in pure amazement of how perfect the linear pattern shaped the body. To this day I believe ‘Platos Atlantis” Spring/Summer 2010 Runway is the most exhilarating, progressive, fashion forward, inventive runway show to date. I know people die everyday but I don’t understand why the good die young. No one on earth can excite a girls imagination like McQueen.

  • I can’t wait to see this!
