V&A releases 50,000 extra tickets for Alexander McQueen show

If you missed out on the first tickets for Savage Beauty, now's your chance

Did you, like everybody else in the UK, try to get your hands on a ticket for Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty? Did you, like pretty much everybody else in the UK, fail? The retrospective that wowed New York lands at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London on 14 March. Tickets went on sale last year and sold out almost instantly. The V&A website even momentarily crashed from the number of visiters desperately clicking on the site. But you're in luck: an extra 50,000 tickets have gone on sale right now.

You can get them over at the V&A website. The exhibition will also be extended by two weeks and will run in total for a glorious five months, ending on August 2. There will also be early morning openings and extended evening hours to accommodate demand.

Savage Beauty marks the fifth anniversary of McQueen's untimely death, but it's also a fitting tribute to the late designer's genius. Over 200 garments and accessories have been pulled from the archives of McQueen and Givenchy (and Isabella Blow's personal collection) for display. That includes iconic, little-seen pieces from his early collections, including his 1992 graduate show Jack the Ripper Stalks his Victims

The exhibition broke all records for the Metropolitan Museum of Art when it went on show in 2011, attracting some 660,000 visitors. So if you want to get your hands on a ticket, you better get to it today. 

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