The fashion world has been COMPLETELY on the ups since the death of the Great Alexander McQueen. Curiosity coupled with concern has left the minds of fashion victims EVERYWHERE in disarray about the future of such an AMAZING line. The announcement that the new creative director would be Sarah Burton, who has been employed at the House of McQueen for roughly 16 years, momentarily eased our minds, yet we remained at the edge of our seats wondering “Will she succeed in her execution?”

5 months later at menswear fashion week in Milan, Sarah has prevailed with a orgasmic collection that lies all of our concerns to rest.
Sarah opted to correlate many previous designs into one collection in a method not to over-do her debut. She also flirted with different styles while keeping it completely theatrical and unrestricted in true “McQueen” fashion. I was EXTREMELY pleasantly surprised. The asymmetric trench coat, the contoured waists, the tie-dyed blouses and blazers, The color palette and the wonderful patterns were all amazing and spoke volumes about the future of McQueen; It is truly in great hands.
