Alexander McQueen's final collection

Alexander McQueen's truly magnificent final collection.
Only 16 looks were shown out of the usual 30/40, these were the looks that McQueen had 80% finished before he tragically died 4 weeks ago. Each piece had been cut on the stand by Lee McQueen himself and completed by the design team in time for the A/W 2010 show.
There were no grand theatrics this time, the collection was simply shown in a chic Parisian drawing room. It was a perfectly elegant setting for the collection which was inspired Byzantine art and early dutch renaissance painters.

Images of cherubs and the Madonna appeared digitally printed on dresses, rich, gold thread was embroidered over scarlet silk and there was an entire coat made out of gold feathers worn over one of several floor-skimming white gowns.
