Exactly five years ago on February 11th, the news about Alexander McQueen’s death shocked the world Fashion industry.

Famous for his provoking fashion shows and spectacular designs, he is without a doubt the most iconic and inspirational designer of this generation. If he was alive today would continue to amaze us with his creations, produce the most imaginative shows and be the best British designer.

Savage Beauty is the most awaited exhibition, coming to the V&A in London on March 14th, it celebrates McQueen’s extraordinary contribution to fashion and features work from his incredible nineteen year career. Previously shown at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York it became the eight most popular in the Met’s history, and will finally open here very soon, I can’t wait to see this wonderful exhibition!

“Everybody else calls him Lee, I call him Alexander, because I think of Alexander the Great”. 

– Isabella Blow.
