Today is the last day that The Metropolitan Museum in New York hosts the most talked about exhibit: Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. Twitter has gone wild over the weekend by demanding that the designer's collection is brought back home to London; where it belongs.
Conveying his outstanding contribution to fashion in ways that only Lee McQueen could portray, the exhibition is said to be breathtakingly beautiful, with one attendee @mycitymynewyork tweeting "mind blowing! Totally stretched my imagination! He really saw beauty hidden all around."
With over one hundred original design pieces and around seventy accompanying accessories, you can feast your eyes amongst his iconic "bumster" trousers, the kimono jacket and the origami dress all of which sent the fashion world into over drive as McQueen put the 'art' back into fashion.
Controversial collections such as Highland Rape and Jack The Ripper Stalks His Victims pave the way for his innovative and reveloutionary take on the fashion world. Not only would the exhibition draw in world wide fashionistas, but admirers of his artistic formations and his dedication to creativity as well as his own loyal fans and followers.
Bringing the showcase to London would be like bringing the designer home to rest. From his childhood years in Lewisham to his educational years studying at the infamous Central Saint Martins - the exhibition belongs in the capital city. McQueen infamously said: "London is where I grew up. Its where my heart it; and where I get my inspiration".
So instead of pouring over the images online and imagining what its like to actually go there and witness the beauty and prolific admiration toward art that fashion brought out of the insatiable Alexander McQueen, why not sign the petition to make the exhibit worldwide and eventually to bring him home to where he belongs; in London: Please make Alexander McQueen's Savage Beauty a travelling exhibition.
