want to empower women. I want people to be afraid of the women I dress”.

I spent last weekend in London for the exhibition dedicated to the long gone talent of Alexander McQueen in Victoria & Albert Museum, an emotional trip down to the brilliance and inner world of a designer who cannot be compared to anyone else.
Among iconic pieces of his work from the 90s to “Plato’s Atlantis”, his last complete collection before his death, there is the hologram of Kate Moss included from his Fall/Winter 2006 fashion show that brings tears to my eyes every single time.

Alexander McQueen – The backstage film

 Alexander McQueen launches today a backstage film created by Sean Frank, during the Spring/Summer 2013 show.

 “The collection is a study of femininity. We looked at erotica. Vargas girls, cages, corsets and crinolines and the idealisation of the female form. Nothing is set in a particular period.  It’s about sensuality and skin but not nudity. We also wanted to express lightness, for the clothes almost to hover over the women who wear them.” Sarah Burton.

Alexander McQueen: The Finale

paris fashion week was above all stigmatized by the private small presentation Alexander McQueen’s working team decided to throw, a show for a limited group of people, editors and friends, with the 16 outfits the designer was preparing and that were almost finished by the time of his death. Medieval and religion references but in a romantic/gothic way, perfectly tailored handcrafted creations spurting tranquility in every way, shoes wreathed in gilded roses, golden mohawks and a couture essence and quality which had always been his signature.
