Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, on display at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2011 showcased the magnificent work of Lee Alexander McQueen. McQueen's life and tragic death touched the industry and he will be remembered with honor. McQueen will be remembered as an innovator, a designer, a genius ahead of his time. Please sign this petition if you would like to see his commemorative exhibit become a traveling exhibition to share his work with a larger audience, worldwide.
*Update: April 2014: The Victoria And Albert Museum in London has announced they will host an encore of the New York show in 2015.
In order to achieve our goal, we must convince the garment donors to part with their beautiful pieces on loan to allow them to go on a global tour.
