The COSTUME INSTITUTE will pay tribute to the late Alexander Mcqueen this coming May 4 to July 31 entitled SAVAGE BEAUTY at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The exhibition will feature his outstanding designs from his Central Saint Martins postgraduate collection in 1992 until his final runway presentation which took place after his death last February 2010.
The exhibit will feature 100 amazing pieces from the 19 year span of his career. The 100 piece exhibition will also feature his designs from the Givenchy archives and some of his greatest hits like the bumster trouser, kimino jacket, origami coats, digital prints and more!
