AlexanderMcQueen-Fall- 2010-fashionado
Alexander McQueen's last reign took form in an exquisite collection of sixteen pieces. He studied the paintings of the Old Master's as the inspiration for this work. 

The pieces are lavishly and painstakingly embroidered. 

His use of color is dramatic and saturated.

Women's Wear Daily reports on the staging and feel of the show:

"With a haunting soundtrack of operatic music, the presentation was solemn, funereal and even a little spooky — and the references to angels, broken skulls and religious themes eerily prescient. Tears were welling in the eyes of some spectators as the finale dress entered: a grand coat of gold feathers that ended in a froth of embroidered tulle."

McQueen may have left this world, but his style and influence made a permanent mark on fashion and will most certainly live on.

The end of show notes for the collection, read: "Each piece was unique, as was he."

Lee Alexander McQueen may have left this world, but his style, talent, skill and influence, left an indelible mark on fashion design and will most certainly live on.
