The McQueen effect

March 1, 2008

I got goosebumps when I saw the pictures of Alexander McQueen’s Fall 08 collection—beautiful, romantic and elegant beyond words. I feel touched not only by his genius imagination but also the way it actually tells a very sweet story— ”a girl who comes out of the darkness to meet a prince and become a queen.” From the ballerina dresses to the couture-like final piece, we can absolutely get the ideas he is trying to convey. This is what a fashion show should be and it has definitely woke the on-going Fashion Week up.

    I thought the collection was amazingly beautiful. It’s a huge departure from his Mad Max Beyond Thunderdoom past.
