"I've got a 600-year-old elm tree in my garden, and I made up this story of a girl who lives in it and comes out of the darkness to meet a prince and become a queen." This was Alexander McQueen explaining his inspiration for his Fall 2008 exquisite collection. There is no doubt that Alexander McQueen was a genius. His 2008 collection was the transition from confined, uptight and obscure pieces to more feminine and light. The collection was a wonder in the visual sense, the craftsmanship and for the first time wearability. The news of Alexander McQueen's death in 2010 was devastating because he is responsible for producing some of the most beautiful and shocking images in the history of fashion. Fortunately for all of us, his admirers, we can find consolation on the body of work he left behind. The dress here is an iconic piece and expresses the designer's romantic side. McQueen would have wanted you to dance around like a dark haunted Barbie doll.

Alexander McQueen black tulle dress with full skirt and corset bustier, Fall 2008. Marked size 42.SOLD
