Take Me to New Heights: Alexander McQueen Spring 2008

While we are on the precipice of another exciting fashion season, I think it’s always nice to reflect on seasons past. (gosh, that sounded like a hallmark card) It’s time to take a look back at the Alexander McQueen Spring 2008 Show in Paris.

This collection was a tribute to Isabella Blow, an international style icon and muse for Philip Treacy, a famous milliner who often used her style in many of his pieces. Isabella passed away in May of 2007 and it was quite a shock to the fashion world. She embodied what it was to have personal style ans she could literally wear anything. Something that I haven’t seen since. She was a massive fan of McQueen and was famous for purchasing his graduate collection and then paid it off in installments. (if only we could all do that)

Apart from the references it was a typical McQueen show in every way. His perfectly fitting silhouettes and structure with line and color. His ability to tell a story has grown stronger with each season. So, when McQueen unveiled his show for Spring 2008 it beautifully served as an amazing tribute to a truly inspirational figure in the industry. Now, onto the show.
