Sarah Burton showcased her talent at Paris Fashion Week last night with audacity mixed with frivolity. Burton, who only took the helm at Alexander McQueen in 2010, outshone her previous efforts with an exquisitely avant-garde and futuristic range of womenswear.
In a collection that featured dress lengths from short to floor-length, Burton embraced layers of fur and an abundance of ruffles and details fashioned from sheer silk, organza and satin fabrics. The British designer created a selection that included self-detailed outfits with oversized beads, sequins, cut outs, large metallic belts and silver embellishments, adhering to the progressive theme.
Fur footwear, capes, a variety of dramatic necklines, unusually attractive oversized black metallic eyewear and a distinctive colour palette ranging from whites and blacks to nude pinks, electric reds and purples gave the audience plenty to talk about.
