Considering that it is a little over a year since the designer's tragic death, as well as the house's role in the creation of Kate Middleton's wedding dress, the exhibition announcement comes at a most pertinent time. According to The Sunday Times:
"The show — which will feature about 100 examples of McQueen’s work — will span a series of galleries depicting the designer’s key themes, such as Romantic Mind and Romantic Primitive. Star pieces will include the dress worn by Shalom Harlow while being spray-painted by robots for his SS99 show and a gown made of silk and real flowers from SS07 that shed blooms as it went down the catwalk. (It will be displayed in a bell jar, adorned again with real flowers, which will decompose over the course of the exhibition to become potpourri-like)".
As the designer is a truly personal favourite of mine, this has to be my cultural highlight of the year.
