This is a collection about excess – an exploration of ideals of beauty at their most extreme.” – Sarah Burton, Creative Director of Alexander McQueen

In their words…
Never-before-seen close-ups demonstrate the couture-level craftsmanship of the collection. The film captures the runway looks in motion and shows the details of signature McQueen prints, elaborate embellishments and the season’s soft colour palette – white, ivory, gold, lilac, blush and coral.Published on November 16, 2011
