If fash­ion mu­se­ums were peo­ple, the Vic­to­ria and Al­bert Mu­seum would surely be royalty. Hous­ing the largest col­lec­tion of dresses in the world, doc­u­ment­ing four cen­turies of tex­tiles, the mu­seum com­ple­ments its per­ma­nent archive, rang­ing from cos­tume, hats and fash­ion from the 18th, 19th and 20th cen­turies with com­pre­hen­sive, con­tem­po­rary ex­hi­bi­tions. ‘Alexan­der McQueen: Sav­age Beauty’ is one such dis­play cur­rently run­ning un­til 2 Au­gust 2015. Orig­i­nally shown at the Metropoli­tan Mu­seum of Art in New York and be­com­ing one of its most vis­ited dis­plays, the Vic­to­ria and Al­bert Mu­seum has now part­nered with Swarovski to cel­e­brate the al­ready le­gendary ca­reer of McQueen, be­gin­ning with his grad­u­ate col­lec­tion and end­ing with the in­com­plete 2010 Au­tumn/ Win­ter col­lec­tion.
