My Favorite Designer

My favorite designer is Alexander McQueen, not the brand, now run by Sarah Burton, but the designer himself and his strong, innovative designs.  I admire his creativity with materials, whether they are shells, feathers, or glass. His use of texture and color helped convey the complex thoughts that inspired each collection. His designs are strong and sometimes dark, yet he also has the ability to evoke a fragility and softness. Alexander McQueen was clearly a designer that understood the rules of tailoring, but he was not afraid to break them in order to get his point of view across. He was deeply imaginative and inspires me to challenge the conventialism of fashion and use it as a tool to convey what is important to me.Image
