The first Paris showing without Alexander McQueen at the helm of his own label was always going to be an emotional rollercoaster. After his passing designer Sarah Burton took the reigns and made it her mission to keep Lee's fire burning bright. The collection proved to be a huge succes for not only Burton, but for the label itself. Staying true to the brand and to McQueen's vision, Burton included McQueen staples of brocade, embriodery, raffia, feathers, animal prints, handpainted leather and obmre silk ruffled chiffon. This collection was a real homage to McQueen and no doubt he would have been proud as punch. Visit www.alexandermcqueen.com or www.vogue.com.au for collection details.
