Alexander McQueen

Death Of a Legend : 5 years on

5 years ago today was Alexander McQueen's memorial where the likes of Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell and Sarah Jessica Parker bid a bitter-sweet fair well to one of England's Most iconic fashion designers

sadly McQueen took his Life on February 11th 2010, 3 years after Isabella blow committed suicide his friend and inspiration .

I like many other fell in love with McQueen's Work in 09 when I was studying GCSE fashion and religiously started researching all his previous collections from his very first collection to his last

Deemed as " The Bad boy of fashion " McQueen Certainly Kept up with his end of the bargain with his Spring/Summer 98 "golden shower "collection  featuring a lot of nudity latex sheer fabrics and models walking down the catwalk as rain cascaded down from the machine above.

Not to say that McQueen didn't also delve into slightly less bondage-esque approach with his Spring/ Summer 07 "sarabande" collection which saw a Botanic with a Gothic twist.

"Things rot, I used flowers because they die my mood was darkly romantic at the time "-McQueen

Shortly after his death Sarah Burton became creative director for Alexander McQueen has gone on to design the Duchess of Cambridge wedding dress

I just wanted to dedicate a post to one of the most daring and influential fashion designers whose creativity has captivated,influenced and inspired my style

RIP Alexander McQueen

Give me time and I'll give you a revolution.
                               I find beauty in the grotesque, like most artists
 Fashion should be a form of escapism, and not a form of imprisonment.
