Paris Fall 09: Alexander McQueen

McQueen... oh McQueen, how amazing your brain works. This collection was so full of PASSION, and POWER. There is such emotion and excitement projected into these clothes. The bold oversized patterns in increasingly exaggerated classically feminine silhouettes as the show went along, created an amazing tension that I think is seldom seen in the runway. The details were so luxurious and decadent; oversized hats, feathers, bows and even metal body armor, it was truly a feast for the eyes.

I was completely blown away. I'm so glad Alexander McQueen is around.

the use of optical illusion prints are pretty much the epitome and expression of what this is. A little reminiscent of Dior. I could do without the wax lips though. I
