The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute has had the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibit open for the past few months now.

And the exhibit, which has brought in over half a million people, is now being petitioned to move to the UK.

A new campaign and online petition started by Grazia’s editor states:

“Do you admire the work of Alexander McQueen and wish you had experienced the sell out exhibition honouring his work which just closed at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art? If the answer is yes, then you also probably think it is totally ridiculous that one of Britain's greatest designers was honoured abroad, far far away from the city he was born, raised and educated in.”

A rep from McQueen states they have yet to make any plans but “are thrilled with the obvious appreciation of the exhibition at the Met and are waiting until the end of the exhibition before making any further decisions.'"

What do U think? Where should the exhibit be displayed at next?
