In May, the diverse and acclaimed fashion designs of the late Alexander McQueen will be on display in New York City at the Metropolitan Museum, according to The Guardian.

His pieces will be arranged by category and theme, instead of chronology. There will be more than 100 items on display. Pieces will range from his 1994 Nihilism collection to the posthumous Angels & Demons outfits, which were exhibited in 2010. From the McQueen tartan to the Kate Moss dancing hologram, all of the key points of the designer's career will be open for admirers to visit.

"His work fits so easily within the discourse of art," Thomas Campbell, director of the Met museum, told the news provider. "He can be considered no less than an artist whose medium of expression was fashion."

Fashion designer Stella McCartney will co-chair the exhibit. Sarah Burton, McQueen's associate of 14 years and now president of his label, will also attend the event.

Alexander McQueen's fashion designs had won him numerous awards throughout the years - including four British Designer of the Year awards and the Council of Fashion Designers of America's International Designer of the Year.
