Two of fashion's most powerful people have come together for a discussion that has been beautifully captured by Nowness. The New York Times's fashion critic Cathy Horyn took the opportunity to get up close and personal with Sarah Burton as well as her amazing pieces for Alexander McQueen. In this video, Burton talks about what inspires her, the Alexander McQueen woman and just how Lee Alexander mastered the process of creating statement-making designs.

"What you wear is making a statement about the period of history we live in. Every time [Lee] felt every time an obligation to say what he meant. He felt that he had to have a message - about society, or himself," she says.
