To Alexander McQueen

Thank you for remembering me fashion should be a refuge for dreams, not mere clothes. I feel grateful to you for returning my faith, for being capable of telling a story, for using your talent to make us scape from the cruel world. You got me down on my knees.

I just posted on this collection as well, I adore it. And models in flats without looking awkward (Chanel?).

This collection is amazing
The models must love doing his shows because they really are shows

I'd love to one day see a McQueen show in person; can you imagine the spectacle?

I agree, it's so important to have dramatic designers like McQueen to punctuate the more wearable collections.

Love the headpieces, too.

yes, Lauren Conrad did work at TV. But it's all a bit of a farce really because she doesn't really have an ounce of style in my opinion.

Lisa Love clearly fancied a bit of publicity!

This is so beautiful, such a delirous spectacle, I love it. It does, as you said, make me dream. This is fashion as art, fashion as I love it most.

McQueen does marry up spectacle and substance very well...
