The last collection by the late legend is a spectacle of absolute craftsmanship, reminding us of how the world of arts will miss such immense talent. Held at a private location for a select few, the show was a tribute in mourning for Alexander McQueen, models wearing the theatrics of utter genius to slow operatic music. Each dress was more spectacular than the last, filled with beautiful details and particular, brilliant tailoring. Each dress looked like a canvas of Renaissance painting; McQueen drew influence from Byzantine art, paintings by the Old Masters, Angels and Medieval beauty, one particular draped dress featured a print of painting with angels which was purely magnificent, all leading to the stunning dress at the very end, with gold statuesque feathered coat… Breath-takingly mesmerizing.
McQueen, you are missed.
