Alexander McQueen Shined at London Fashion Week
At the Alexander McQueen London Fashion Week show, onlookers were enchanted by the design team’s autumn/winter 2012 collection, which offered an array of looks for every kind of woman.
Models walked down the runway in laced-up leg boots, military-style beige and green frocks, plaid gowns with lace detailing, and skirts, coats, and dresses with luxurious embroidery. The outerwear complemented the unique runway, which started out with leaves and trees and ended with a fairy tale cottage that turned into a disco party.
The energy of the collection and the accompanying show, launched by McQueen creative director Sarah Burton and parent company CEO Francois Pinault, wowed just about everyone who witnessed it. People spoke positively about the McQueen team’s ability to match their line’s aesthetic to what the late Alexander McQueen would have liked.
“We are growing McQueen,” Pinault said. “It is very important for the equilibrium of the brand to balance the luxury of the signature line.”
Pinault also announced plans to open a new McQueen flagship store on Dover Street in London this spring.
Backstage at the show, Burton said she was making an effort to elevate the brand, and that this collection was one of her first steps towards that goal. Burton has done exceedingly well in capturing the visions of the late designer. It is clear that she is committed to continuing McQueen’s contributions to the fashion world.
All in all, the McQueen designers mastered the quirky label, which the London fashion community is all about. The edge, creativity, and clothing in the show undoubtedly excited fashion-forward crowds all around the world.
