 Internationally renowned designer Alexander McQueen will be honoured in an exhibition, here next year.

The late British designer, famed for being Givenchy's creative director before launching his own successful label, is due to be celebrated with the revival of popular US retrospective, "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty", which is heading to the V&A Museum from March 14 to July 19 2015, reports contactmusic.com.

Martin Roth, director of the V&A, said: "I am thrilled to announce that the V&A will bring this wonderful exhibition to London to celebrate the extraordinary creative talent of one of the most innovative designers of recent times."

"Lee Alexander McQueen was brought up in London, studied here and based his globally successful McQueen fashion brand here - by staging the exhibition at the V&A it feels like we are bringing his work home," added Roth.

"Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" was originally displayed at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2011.

It showcased the key milestones in his career, from his 1992 MA graduate collection to more recent pieces.
