The Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, closed on Monday (August 8, 2011), after becoming one of the most successful shows in the museum's history. Despite the huge success there are NO plans to tour the exhibition, and NO plans to bring the exhibition to England. Sign this petition if you feel the exhibition should come home...
Sign the petition to bring McQueen show to the UK... ps you don't have to pledge money at the end... just close. This will make sense when you sign up!
