Alexander McQueen's Final Show

The world was able to see Alexander McQueen's final Fall 2010 runway show, after all, and for that I am very grateful. I wanted to share his final collection with you as it is exceptionally exquisite and has such an awe inspiring medieval beauty and romanticism to it. I will let his work speak for itself. I hope you enjoy the beauty he created. His creativity will be greatly missed.

The review of McQueen's show, written by Sarah Mower at says, "Sarah Burton, his right hand, described how, in beginning this collection, McQueen had turned away from the world of the Internet, which he had so powerfully harnessed in his last show. "He wanted to get back to the handcraft he loved, and the things that are being lost in the making of fashion," she said. "He was looking at the art of the Dark Ages, but finding light and beauty in it. He was coming in every day, draping and cutting pieces on the stand." The 16 outfits shown had been 80 percent finished at the time of his death."

That in itself is inspiring to me - to take time to turn away from the Internet and to spend time creating from within return to the handcrafts you love and that are becoming lost.
