Backstage at Alexander McQueen SS12

.....Being on holiday during fashion week season has meant i have a hell of alot of catching up to do! Coverage of the shows , hundreds of street style and backstage pics, reviews and countless blogs to read has left me daunted but inspired.
So far, a standout show of the season for me was Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen! An absolutley beautiful collection of jaw dropping gowns which seemed to be inspired by the evolution of flora, fauna and the wonders of the sea. The models looked beautiful in headpieces and masks which looked like shedded skin of snakes, sea coral and spiders webs. Who knew looking like a seriously overdressed and confused scuba diver could be so beautiful!Sarah Burton paid homage to the classic silhouettes made famous by the late Lee McQueen but her own touch was clearly present throughout the collection.
Every single gown was a masterpiece of intense detail and craftsmanshift and every single gown was instantly recognisable as a McQueen....making this collection a guranteed success.
Hmm how will i perfect this look next season....sew together a few fishes to make a dress, abit of seaweed in the hair maybe? maybe not....you couldnt possibly imitate a McQueen!
