alexander mcqueen tribute

17 November 2010
next spring, the costume institute at the metropolitan museum of art in new york will be paying tribute to the late designer with "alexander mcqueen: savage beauty." the show will feature 100 looks dating from his graduate work at central saint martins college of art and design in london to his final collection, presented this year after his death.

rather than a retrospective feel, the exhibit will be organized by theme, focusing on mcqueen's interest in romanticism. the themes include "the savage mind," "romantic gothic," "romantic nationalism," "romantic exoticism," and "romantic primitivism."

francois-henri pinault, chief executive officer of ppr, which owns alexander mcqueen, and his wife, salma hayek, will serve as honorary chairs of the exhibit launch on may 2, 2011. co-chairs will be colin firth, stella mccartney and anna wintour.
