Quote Of The Day:
Christian Louboutin:

The shoe designer behind those iconic red soles has said: ”I really have not so much sympathy. If Tina Turner and Prince’s back-up band can perform on stage in them for three hours, you can’t tell me they are impossible to walk in. High heels are pleasure with pain. If you can’t walk in them, don’t wear them.”

Sarah Burton Named on Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People list

Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen’s Creative Director and designer of the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress, has been named on Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People list.

In the issue, Sarah Jessica Parker pays tribute to the designer writing: “She is a young woman who shouldered an enormous burden and privilege with dignity, heart and strength”.

The Spring / Summer 2012 Collection

With extraordinarily breathtaking detail, the Alexander McQueen Spring / Summer 2012 collection is a heaven sent, fashion fantasy. Sarah Burton, McQueen’s creative director, said of the collection: “This is a collection about excess. It’s an exploration of ideals of beauty at their most extreme. We go to such lengths to adorn ourselves that we almost become our clothes or are taken over by them.”

In a colour palette of shimmering black, gold, silver, white, peach and red; the collection was filled with divine ruffles, lace and delicately beautiful allure. Raised waist silhouettes created exaggerated lines of movement Burton described as how “a jellyfish moves in the sea”. Shoulders were emphasised and curves accentuated with bustles.

With an avant garde edge, the ready-to-wear collection was practically couture with its extreme attention to detail. Every piece was hand sewn with half made in the UK, half made in France – some by Burton herself.

J’aime Michelle Williams & McQueen!
