i had no interest in the royal wedding until this morning when i found out who designed Kate Middleton‘s dress: Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen!
gorgeous dress, still very much in homage to the late, great designer… and that is the extent of my interest.

it’s sarah burton‘s second season taking over for the late alexander mcqueen, and she’s doing very well so far.
having been at his right hand for reportedly close to 20 years, burton has proven to be the right choice as successor for the fashion house – below are some of my favorites from the spring/summer 2011 show:

one of my favorite seasons, across all the designers – alexander mcqueen fall/winter 2006.
he showed a varied and yet still encompassing genius, and showed a knack for technological artistry from the beginning.
