The first thing I have to say is a big WOW when I am this excited over fashion as no other words can describe my feelings towards Alexander McQueen’s new collection Autumn/Winter 2012 in Paris Fashion Week and its is all down to Sarah Burton a.k.a known as the royal wedding dress designer.
Big thanks to Sarah Burton who has come to her own with the collection; and she has transformed McQueen’s usual collection, from the outrageous designs and the dark theme to this very different feminine look, but at the same time keeping it every bit of the Alexander Mc Queen era. I don’t usually go for his crazy outfits, but she has definitely turned the collection around, as Sarah Burton has done something different with the bouncy, fluffy and bright colours on his catwalk, the continuous layers gives it the extreme but feminine look we all desire. The models showcased the designs with metallic eye masks; giving the feel of a very futuristic aroma, complimenting the metallic thick belts round the waists – STUNNING!
The signature Sarah Burton lace, with flowery patterns defines the collection as girly and elegant. The oversized elbow length capes, fur and layers around their shoulders down to their elbows shows a big statement in all the glory of the elegant feel of a women.
