And it was proud moment for the fashion house, when Sarah Burton to design the wedding dress for the Duchess of Cambridge. Sarah Burton was also named in the “Time 100” most influential people in 2012.
For the Fall/Winter 2018 collection, Sarah Burton wanted to showcase feminine power with her designs. When most of the designers came with designs that largely concentrated on providing protecting suits and blankets like dresses, Sarah Burton also didn’t deviate much and were much in line with the prophecy of McQueen’s vision. Some of he designed also displayed a mix of both strength and the weakness of women like the butterfly-wing prints combined with bondage leather.
The McQueen show started enthralling the audience with a line of modest suits that featured wide shoulders and large sleeves. Some suits came with a fitted waist and some came attached with designer scarfs. The collection also featured a mix of corset belts and buttery-soft skirts attached with leather halters.
The catch of the evening was the designs that resembled beautiful butterfly wings that were brilliantly draped into monochrome dresses. Another great moment that created a lot of buzz among the audience is the cape that was handsomely transformed the print into a thick fringe and the sprouting feathers with full fringes. And when it comes to designing fringes the McQueen’s were always the No1 designer in the world. Overall, the Fall/Winter 2018 collection was a major success for the Alexander McQueen and also for Sarah Burton for perfectly balancing the strengths and weakness, the soft and hard sides to showcase the dualities of womanhood.
