I know i'm a bit late with posting this, as this collection was actually shown last week. Im sure these photos are nothing new to you as well, as i've seen a few bloggers doing a post about Paris fashion week. But i really wanted to do a post about the amazing works of Sarah Burton for the Alexander McQueen label. As part of my course, i have to watch what's going on in the big fashion houses, as we have to do all our research from right at the top, and filter it down, because what we will be wearing next spring/summer would of started right here.

I was a bit apprehensive about Sarah Burton being able to pull of a whole collection in aprox 4 months, i wasn't sure if she would be able to make a collection look like he had designed it himself. But being his right hand girl, i guess she was the obvious choice to carry it on. Im glad she did, because she made it look simply amazing. It started off a bit slow, and i thought she was playing it safe but then outcome these beautiful over the top dresses. It makes me sad to think he'd never see this work, but you know there's a lot of Mqueen in there too. With a hint of the new designer, and i think that's what makes it work. It's different, without being dramatic.

Im simply in love with them all and cannot wait to see what she does next.

  1. I think Sarah Burton did a great job too! Obviously there were parts of her in the previous collections, and it shows in this follow through effort. Its so tragic that Alexander McQueen is no longer with us, but Sarah has done so well to follow through with his ethic and let it shine through in her own work.

    Great post,

  4. These are such gorgeous gowns. I don't know how a lot of them could be pulled off, though, even given immense amounts of money!

    Is it just me or do all the models look like clones of one another?

  6. I genuinely feel like this work could have been done by mcqueen himself. The colour palette is similar to last years armadillo phase and the shapes envelope the body in a way that mcqueen himself would have chosen - though perhaps he'd have distorted the face more or perhaps the shoes. It's an amazing collection, I think she's done amazingly well.
