The Met’s sold-out Alexander McQueen retrospective exhibition Savage Beauty is going to London. After countless spurious rumours that it would, and even a campaign to ensure it did, the V&A announced that it will host the exhibition from March 14 to July 19 2015.

The collection, which covers the spectrum of McQueen’s career from his 1992 MA graduate show to his unfinished autumn/ winter 2010 collection, was originally displayed in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art from May 4 to August 7 2011. Its run time was extended by a week due to popular demand and it became the eighth most popular in the Met’s 141-year history – behind Treasures of Tutankhamun (1978), Mona Lisa (1963), and Picasso (2010) – boasting a total of 661,509 visitors.
