The Metropolitan Museum of Art (the Met) in New York City is renowned for hosting memorable exhibits, and this coming May, another notable display will make its debut.

"Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" will open at the Costume Institute on May 4, according to the New York Times. The British designer, who took his own life this past February, is famous for ensembles that represent female power and sensuality. The exhibit will feature outfits from his 1992 show at Central Saint Martins to his final collection, which debuted at the beginning of this year.

Metropolitan curators say that finding pieces from his earlier collections will be difficult. McQueen was known for designing his original pieces for friends or any patrons who would pay him just to stay afloat. By the time McQueen died at age 40, he was designing ensembles for celebrities, including Lady Gaga and Sarah Jessica Parker. He had boutiques in Las Vegas, Milan and New York.

The gala will be held on May 2. Honorary chairs include François-Henri Pinault and Salma Hayek.

Although fashion designer jobs are only predicted to increase by 1 percent over the next eight years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, wholesale retailers are expected to see an increase in business.
