McQueen's Perspective on Fashion & Society
I’m a strong believer in the idea of fashion being a reflection of society, so with all that’s going on in our culture, there’s just that much and more happening on the runway. We’re seeing every designer revisit the core of what made them successful: their strength, personal style, perspective, and passions. Essentially what makes every designer so different from one another is their world view. For example Alexander McQueen has made quite the statement for his Spring/Summer 2009 collection, “We’re in danger of killing the planet through greed. This collection is about me looking at the world and seeing what we’ve done.” McQueen’s collection is a product of something so close to his heart. This exact personal world view might be the very reason Target was able to snatch up his impeccable designs. Here’s a little sneak peek of McQueen’s futuristic meets traditional collection.
