Paris Fashion Week A/W 2011: Alexander McQueen
Could these be the designs that will inspire a royal wedding gown? Sarah Burton unveiled her A/W '11 collection for Alexander McQueen yesterday, and it had everyone talking as to whether we'll be soon be seeing similar on Kate Middleton next month.
Doing the late designer proud, Burton carved her own path yesterday with a collection appropriately named "The Ice Queen and Her Court." Structured silhouettes, strong shoulders, exaggerated skirts, floaty sleeves, embroidery, feathers and pleats dominated the runway. With metal fastenings at the neck, models appeared almost futuristic in leather cropped trousers with exposed zips, and bondage-like belts around the neckline. The wedding dress - an exquisite creation featuring a 500 metre hand-pleated chiffon train left many wondering... could this be it?
