The V&A says the show will be the first and largest retrospective of the late designer’s work to be presented in Europe and will highlight McQueen’s 'visionary body of work'.

The exhibition will span McQueen's nearly 20-year career from his 1992 MA graduate collection at Central Saint Martins to his unfinished A/W 2010 collection.
