From New Beginnings: Alexander McQueen Fall 2011 RTW

Alexander a McQueen, now a brand more than just a designer,  is now described as a culture,  "the juxtaposition between contrasting elements: fragility and strength, tradition and modernity, fluidity and severity." 

Sarah Burton's Fall 2011 line shows a strong departure from Lee McQueen's last few shows, while maintaining all of the masterful artistry that the line is known for. Indeed, I remain fascinated at how well the McQueen name has endured without skipping a beat. This seems to be a testament to how well McQueen worked with his team, including Burton, while remaining a great inspiration after his death. 

What's amazing about Burton's fall line is its attention to detail, its macabre whimsy and its use of textures. Without much colour her garments still invoke imagination.
