FALL '10 Alexander McQueen

Before he took his life, Alexander McQueen did an amazing job in his last collection for Fall. It had imagination and technical wizardry, and it reminded me of Star Wars meets the olden days british empire. Each piece was made of couture satin, and paved with golden rococo swirls, the sleeves erupting into three-dimensional embroideries for the "avatar" age. This captured the span of his mind and the skill of his hands.

Alexander McQueen's designs have always been unique and creative, but not bizarre. His creations had a lot of digital graphic patterning, and amazing weaving and embroidery. Each look was worn with a bronzed cap, some spiked with a mohawk of gilded leaves. To me, I find every look was very angelic yet spooky in a certain way. The presentation started off with a haunting soundtrack of operatic music, and tears were welling in the eyes of the people in the audience.

Each piece is unique, as was he.
