Its been more than a year since we lost the visionary and extraordinary Alexander McQueen, but with the show at this week's Paris Fashion Week, Sarah Burton proves she has no problem matching McQueen's talent and craftsmanship.
"I was thinking about an ice queen. Someone strong and noble and romantically powerful" Sarah Burton said describing the Fall/Winter 2011 show at Paris Fashion Week. Though there have been a few shows and collections since Sarah took over the house of McQueen, everyone is still always scrambling for a word from the famously quiet designer. She did not disappoint with this ethereal yet slightly dominatrix-style collection. From hardware to ruffles, there was something for every taste.
Though you can still see so strongly the Alexander in her McQueen shows, Sarah brings a gentle femininity to every piece, visible through even the strongest silhouettes and architectural angles.
With her immaculate talent and keen eye, Sarah continues to prove she was always the only one for the job.
