2010 Alexander McQueen Final Runway Collection Red Satin Metallic Bullion Dress
Breathtaking and important 2010 Alexander McQueen ruby-red satin bullion dress from his final runway collection. Alexander McQueen's final collection was consisted of only 16 pieces. McQueen referred to the collection as “Angels and Demons” in tweets just weeks before his death. Sarah Burton, McQueen's right hand and design assistant for 16 years, said "He wanted to get back to the handcraft he loved, and the things that are being lost in the making of fashion. He was looking at the art of the Dark Ages, but finding light and beauty in it. He was coming in every day, draping and cutting pieces on the stand." McQueen could do opulent and dramatic like no other, but he could also do restrained right alongside it. The gorgeous mix of novelty embroidered metallic bullion with luxorious red satin is so regal yet the vibe behind the garment is incredibly effortless and chic. A rare slice of fashion history is one incredibly gorgeous garment.
