After the death of Lee Alexander McQueen in February 2010 and Sarah Burton took over the fashion house as the new creative director. Many were careful to suspect that she could come even close to compare to Lee Alexander McQueen himself. Luckily for Sarah Burton she impressed pretty much everyone from celebrities, magazines, editors, and fashion designs alike. Her collection for Alexander McQueen S/S 2011 showed beautiful golden and white gowns and dressed glittered with unique prints. The pieces were nature inspired with the use of feathers and butterflies. While keeping to Alexander’s ascetic, Burton was able to still throw in her own little twists here and there.
Were sure Lee Alexander McQueen would be very proud.
See the backstage pictures from the show during Paris Fashion Week before they walked the runway. The images provided by V Magazine are a great way to see the dresses in a new light with more movement.(Via 80s purple)
