A new exhibition celebrating the life and career of Lee Alexander McQueen will open at the V&A in London next month

Announced last night, the V&A will open ticket sales at GMT 10am today for its new exhibit Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. It will run until July 19.

The showcase will feature the spectrum of McQueen's career from his 1992 MA graduate show to his tragically unfinished Autumn/Winter 10 collection. The exhibition was previously on show at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art back in 2011. Due to its popularity, the exhibition was extended by a week and it became one of the top ten most visited events in the Met's 141-year history – behind Treasures of Tutankhamun (1978), Mona Lisa (1963), and Picasso (2010) – and boasting a total of 661,509 visitors. 

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty will run at the V&A in London from May 14 to July 19 2015.
