Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 Runway Review

Fall 2012 was all about three-dimensional volume for Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton. With layers and layers of fabric and feathers, the collection is certainly designed for a powerful and confident woman, but there's an underlining femininity – even girliness – to many of the looks. This season's direction is in keeping with Burton's work at the house thus far where she has been bringing a softer edge to the tough-luxe aesthetic McQueen so perfectly honed.

With a futurist undercurrent, the collection included eye mask-like visors, heel-less shoes, and ballooning silhouettes that were nothing short of technical feats. The palette include black, white, red, and frosty pinks and while even the most streamlined of looks – a nipped at the waist mini dress with sculpted shoulders, for example – will be hard to pull off, the collection was one of the season’s best theatrical displays.
