‘Savage Beauty’ Will Likely Head to London

mcqueen Savage Beauty Will Likely Head to London The fashion label Alexander McQueen is currently in talks to bring the “Savage Beauty” exhibit of the designer’s work to London. The wildly popular show debuted at the Met this spring to record attendence numbers.

“We have been in discussion with a number of major venues in London for some time now however nothing has been finalised,” a spokesperson for the label wrote in an e-mail.

The show at the Met brought 661,509 attendees between when it opened in May and when it closed earlier this month. The museum extended its hours as the closure loomed, and packed the museum with midnight showings in the last two days of the exhibit. In the end, 17,000 visitors purchased $50 tickets for after-hour viewings.
