The last collection of Alexander McQueen who commited suicide earlier this year was probably the most inspirational of all fall 2010 winter collections. The 16 shown outfits proved McQueen’s interest in Roman and Byzantine Empires. The outfits were almost finished when the designer was found dead.
Alexander McQueen‘s previous (spring summer 2010) collection consisted of the most outstanding and extraordinary digitally printed dresses that featured innovative reptile patters. These days he would harness IT technologies to create the first class digital prints. By preparing a fall 2010 winter collection he – on the other contrary – took advantage of handcrafts.
“He wanted to get back to the handcraft he loved, and the things that are being lost in the making of fashion.” Sarah Burton, a new creative designer of the fashion house
Alexander McQueen‘s great attention to details and unique ideas were widely discussed and appreciated. Some of his models looked like fashionable gladiators in rich embellished draped dresses, some like Byzantine princesses in stately caped gowns and some of them resembled the angels. All in all, the collection was simply stunning.
