      Selena Norris

      Centerton, AR

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.

 

Thank you to all the bloggers, and press coverage- especially to:

-  Darryl Warren, Co-petition organizer/ Fashion Observed blogger

- Selena Marie Norris, Co-petition organizer/fashion designer/Kindred Closets blogger

      Selena Norris
      Petition Organizer

      Alexander McQueen created beautiful works of art that most of us could never dream of owning, however we CAN dream of experiencing it. The McQueen exhibit generated nearly $908 million in spending in NY. In the face of an economic crisis, we all deserve a chance to experience luxury and beauty, regardless of the size of our bank accounts. Additionally, making this exhibit travel could bring much needed funds to local businesses around the globe. Help spread the wealth of beauty. Share the petition with everyone you know. Beauty is for All.
