LIVE: McQueen's Last Collection

09 March 2010


As you read this, select groups of fashion editors are viewing a presentation of the last ever collection from the late Alexander McQueen...


Sixteen exquisite outfits are being paraded in an ornate Parisian salon, to assembled editors who have been invited by appointment only to see the clothes.


The collection continues signature themes the designer had explored previously from royalty [scarlet robes] to religion [including a dress featuring angel wings on the back - reflected in the giant mirrors of the salon], the clothes display all the hallmarks of McQueen's couture-quality flights of fantasy - a gold coat is entirely constructed of gilded feathers.


As model Frida Gustavsson, who is walking in the show, tweeted earlier "Feeling so blessed and honored to be a part of the alexander mcqueen presentations today, celebration of a true genius, so beautiful so sad."
