Sarah Burton: Successor of Alexander McQueen

Sarah Burton is the creative director of Alexander McQueen. She took over the reins of the famous British label in May 2010, following Alexander McQueen's death in February the same year.

Burton joined McQueen in 1996 as an intern, and subsequently returned after her graduation. She was appointed head of womenswear in 2000 and acted as McQueen's aide up until his death in February 2010.

In September 2010, she presented her first womenswear collection ( see it here) in Paris. It paid homage to McQueen's dramatic aesthetic but added her own more feminine take. She credits McQueen for teaching her all she knows about design.

For the Spring/Summer 2012 Alexander McQueen collection, (which held recently)Sarah Burton's source of inspiration was 'woman as an object of desire'. As she described it, "This is a collection about excess - an exploration of ideals of beauty at their most extreme."

Here are the feedbacks of those who had watch the Spring/Summer 2012 Alexander McQueen Collection by Sarah Burton.
