Alexander McQueen's SAVAGE BEAUTY @ The Metropolitan Museum of Art



Alexander McQueen's Iconic Designs in Costume Institute Retrospective at Metropolitan Museum
May 4–August 7, 2011


"The spring 2011 Costume Institute exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, is on view May 4 through August 7 (new, extended closing date). The exhibition celebrates the late Mr. McQueen's extraordinary contributions to fashion. From his Central Saint Martins postgraduate collection in 1992 to his final runway presentation, which took place after his death in February 2010, Mr. McQueen challenged and expanded our understanding of fashion beyond utility to a conceptual expression of culture, politics, and identity."
