  • Behind the Scenes at Alexander McQueen- The Beauty, the Splender, the Drama


    “I was thinking about a woman as an object of desire. We go to such lengths to adorn ourselves that we almost become our clothes or are taken over by them. This is a collection about excess – an exploration of ideals of beauty at their most extreme.” – Sarah Burton, Creative Director of Alexander McQueen

    How often do we have the rare chance to be mesmerized by the beauty and intimacy of a collection so magical?

    Sit back and inhale the luxury of this exclusive backstage footage of Sarah Burton and the Alexander McQueen team preparing for the Spring/Summer 2012 runway show during Paris Fashion Week-captured in a short film created by filmmaker Sean Frank.

    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.
