The McQueen Evolution

May 22, 2012

This year is all about celebrating British heritage, the Olympic Games and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee make 2012 a year never to be forgotten. While reading Vogue’s June issue (the amazing cover with Kate Moss on the front) I realised there are many brands to celebrate as well as celebrities like Kate Moss, who represent British craftsmanship. It of course has to be Alexander McQueen.

After THAT wedding dress worn by Kate Middleton and designed by Sarah Burton, McQueen has escalated to become an immense force in the fashion industry. The collections are never without originality and enthusiasm and more than once McQueen transports us into a fairytale, thus the brand is the queen bee of our fairytale obsession over these last few months, note such materials as lace and ruffles, tiaras and peplums.  (Images Vogue.com) Below: Left, Fall 2011.

The Alexander McQueen collection at  the Metropolitan museum recorded one of the highest ever records for an exhibition, I think this proves that the whole world is  in love with the allure and captivating beauty that is McQueen. One of my favourite books is Alexander McQueen: Genius of a Generation by Kristin Knox from 2012, if you are a picture lover then this is the book for you! Another book that I have my eye on is Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty (Metropolitan Museum of Art) by Andrew Bolton and Harold Koda and not to mention Alexander McQueen: Evolution by Katherine Gleason, due to be released this year.
