BREAKING NEWS – Grazia Editor Melanie Rickey announced today on her blog Fashion Editor At Large that a telephone conversation she had with the team at McQueen confirmed that the retrospective exhibition in homage to Lee McQueen’s visionary designs will come to London in 2013.
A petition to see this happen has been doing the rounds with many industry insiders championing it.
Obviously details have not been confirmed but rumours are already spreading regards to the venue for what will be one of the most anticipated fashion exhibitions to come to London. Somerset House, Battersea Power Station and The Truman Brewery have all been mentioned.
The exhibition ran at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York from May 4th to August 7th this year with the Met claiming it was the eighth most visited exhibition in the museum’s 141 year history. This puts it in the same league as Treasures of Tutankhamun (1978), Mona Lisa (1963), and Picasso in The Metropolitan Museum of Art (2010).
This is very exciting news! McQueen have promised to make an official announcement once the plans for the London exhibition are finalised.
