First Look: Alexander McQueen’s Unfinished Collection
The fashion guru’s final project is a tribute to the Old Masters of fine art.
Alexander McQueen’s final collection for autumn/winter 2010 has been unveiled during a series of private presentations that witnesses described as more of a memorial service than a fashion show.
The collection, which the late designer was working on just before he committed suicide on February 11, featured models with bandaged heads and feathered Mohawks, sculptural brocade minidresses, and a coat made of gold feathers atop a full white skirt.
Following the bittersweet event at the Hôtel de Clermont-Tonnerre, Alexander McQueen chief executive Jonathan Akeroyd explained the decision to nix the catwalk show in favor of private presentations.
“He very much had a vision for his show concept, but it didn’t feel right to do that without him,” Akeroyd stated. “We decided this was the best way to do it in a very low profile environment – the most appropriate way in light of what has happened.” (Daily Mail)
