Sarah Burton, Creative Director at Alexander McQueen, continues to garner top reviews as she adds a softer, more feminine touch to the brand’s theatrical aesthetic.
Whimsical, romantic and oh-so dreamy, bring on the unabashedly feminine FW16 collection from Alexander McQueen. The breathtakingly beautiful collection features dresses crafted from gossamer-like, barely-there fabrics that are weighed down with exquisite embellishments and balanced by structured wool outerwear. The surreal, delicate designs will imbue your wardrobe with a certain feminine tenderness, whether you slip into one of the tiered, ruffled dresses or one with the charming butterfly motif. If you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime evening look, the sequinned unicorn dress is an unforgettably ethereal choice.
The late Lee McQueen, a British fashion genius famed for his dramatic runway shows that reportedly brought seasoned editors to tears, was a hard act to follow. Sarah Burton, however, has successfully taken up the Alexander McQueen gauntlet, taking the much loved brand to new heights and even winning the 2011 ‘Designer of the Year’ title at the British Fashion Awards. Burton went on to create the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress, and was later named one of the most influential people in the world in the 2012 ‘Time 100’.
