All patterns were cut on the stand by Lee Alexander McQueen. Each piece is unique, as was he.
Right before Alexander McQueen’s death, he had an eighty percent unfinished autumn/winter collection, 16 pieces, presented during PFW March 8th 2010, to a select handful of fashion editors in a mirrored, gilded salon at the 18th-century Hôtel de Clermont-Tonnerre. Editors said the show was hard to watch because it showed how McQueen was obsessed with the afterlife. The clothes had a medieval and religious look. Basic colours that were repetitively used were red, gold and silver with detailed embroidery. His models were accessorised to show his love for theatrical imagery.

Rest in peace Alexander McQueen.
