Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Extended

To end the week on a high note, the V&A has announced that it has extended the duration of the forthcoming Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition by two weeks, taking its run to August 2nd this year. As if that wasn't enough, the museum has also released an additional 50,000 tickets to meet the huge public demand and revealed that it plans to open early and close late so to facilitate as many visitors as possible.

"With just two months to go, we are seeing an unprecedented demand forSavage Beauty but we also wanted to reassure people that there are still tickets available," said Martin Roth, director of the V&A. "We are committed to providing access to as many as possible during its 20-week run and so pleased to now offer many more opportunities to see this magnificent show in London."
Since tickets went on sale last year, 30,000 have been sold to date, breaking the museum's record for the most ever advance sales - and people will be coming from far and wide. So far, tickets have been bought online from McQueen fans from every continent and 57 different countries with the highest number bought outside the UK coming from America, followed by Ireland.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty, in partnership with Swarovski, supported by American Express, with thanks to MAC Cosmetics and made possible with the co-operation of Alexander McQueen, runs from 14th March - 2nd August 2015.
