A McQueen Weekend

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all feel refreshed after another long weekend!

What a huge few days it has been for the team working at Alexander McQueen. Firstly there was the amazing wedding dress worn by Kate Middleton, designed by Sarah Burton and the Metropolitan Museum of Art held a retrospective for the designer last night.

Royal Wedding fever is starting to die down, although the reports of people queuing outside Westminster Abbey to view the bouquet may suggest otherwise. However, the dress worn by Kate looked incredibly elegant, stylish and classy. How the dress and designer were kept a secret we’ll never know so credit all round. Apparently replica versions are already hitting stores!! In all it was a good day for British fashion with Vivienne Westwood, Philip Treacy and Anna Valentine all coming out on top. Personally, I liked the fact Princesses’ Beatrice and Eugenie went for a bolder approach to stand out.

Over in the US last night a host of classic McQueen designs were displayed as part of a retrospective look at the designers work. Sarah Jessica Parker wore one of the outfits from the collection (on loan) and looked incredible. I like the understated dominatrix look that Leighton Meister wore. It’s going to be interesting to see how far the high street will go with the S&M vibe in the next few months.
