It was a sad day in the fashion community when we lost Alexander McQueen, but a bright light in all this darkness was the news that his collection would still continue and that his last collection, that he was working on before he died, would still be shown at Paris Fashion Week.
It’s hard to review this collection since it is Lee Alexander McQueen’s last fashion show, and it has a deeper meaning to so many people, but we can say that he will always be remembered as the designer who took risks. This collection is no different.
The show happened today in Paris at the Conciergerie, which was a former royal palace and prison, and provided an amazing backdrop for McQueen’s last show. The collection was brief, consisting of only 16 pieces, and shown on a smaller scale, to only a hand full of the fashion elite. McQueen focused on rich colours, and on exquisite evening attire, which seems to be a complete opposite of the minimalist look that the other designers seem to be taking this season.
An amazing collection from a designer that will be missed forever. Long Live The McQueen.
