Sydney, Aug 25, 2011 (Global Fashion Wire) - In a welcome development, UK magazine, Grazia, backs the campaign for the recent New York McQueen exhibition to travel. Following the launch of our petition to have the exhibition go on tour to other major cities in the world Melanie Rickey, Fashion Editor-at-large of Grazia Magazine (UK) has started a campaign to bring the exhibition to London via her blog and states that the Victoria and Albert Museum (aka the V & A) in London would be interested in hosting the exhibition in London. We have received confirmation that the V & A is indeed interested, recognizing there is much excitement about McQueen's Savage Beauty exhibit in London and in Europe as well.

McQueen was a British designer, and it is perhaps right that London should be the next city to host this record breaking show before the exhibit continues to creative and fashion cities around the world. To bring the Alexander McQueen exhibition to your city vote here:

"The goal of this petition is to help spread the beauty of his work with the world as a final testament and legacy of his genius, to bring him honor as we remember the beauty he brought into the world," says Selena Norris, creator of the petition. "McQueen loved England and he loved being British, but above all, he loved the world, was inspired by all it had to offer, and wanted to share his passion with as much of it as technically possible it."

During his life, McQueen had conveyed to the media his desire to spread his vision throughout the world, even taking his collection to the public via a live streaming broadcast. He also mused the concept of showcasing his collections via hologram stations to the world after enjoying success with such technology demonstrated in the "Widows of Culloden" runway presentation.

The Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Exhibition, a showcase of designs by the late Alexander McQueen recently wrapped up after showing for three months at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, breaking records with an attendance of more than 661,500 people, making it the eighth most popular exhibit and the largest in the history of the Costume Institute.

For more information about the petition and the initiative behind its dissemination please contact: Selena Norris.
