Alexander McQueen Catwalk Fashion Show Paris SS2011
It was the first McQueen collection former assistant Sarah Burton had made on her own and she did a great job.
She presented a collection inspired by Mother Earth that was slightly lighter than we are used to from McQueen himself. Burton showed baroque-details, golden embroideries, high collars and pointy shoulders
Colorful prints in orange and ochre were combined with black and white. There were lots of sheer designs and many creations had nature influences, like leafs, feathers, peacock feathers and wheat.
The hair of the models was done in a special way; it was braided like a woven basket and looked stunning.
After the show everyone was enthusiastic, even the photographers thought it was a perfect McQueen show. So, job wel done Burton, McQueen would be proud.
