Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen’s last collection showcased in Paris

Late designer Alexander McQueen’s last collection, which he had been in the process of creating prior to his suicide last month, has been shown in Paris. The show, which was originally intended to take place in the Conciergerie, a former prison, was backed by the sepulchral 17th-century choral music Alexander had listened to while creating the collection, which consisted of high-necked, close-fitting satin dresses accessorised with high-heeled carved gold shoes and thigh-high boots.
