We look at the influence of Alexander McQueen floral dresses and the gown alterations happening in our studio.
Alexander McQueen Floral Dress
Fashion designer, Alexander McQueen began his career as a tailor's apprentice on Savile Row, London. He then studied for his Fashion Design MA at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
His graduate collection got immediate attention with stylist, Isabella Blow, buying every piece. Then in 1996 he was appointed the Creative Director of Givenchy. By 2001, however he was leaving and began his eponymous fashion brand, Alexander McQueen.
Throughout his career, Alexander McQueen, pushed boundaries with his theatrical shows, silhouettes and motifs. One such influence was flowers whether in the cut, print or embellishments.
This is continued today by current Creative Director, Sarah Burton. A wilting flower inspired their autumn/winter 2015 show. Likewise, hand-painted flowers featured in their latest ready-to-wear line. Whereas, wild-flowers brought Resort 2017 to life.
This re-imagining of a classic has made Alexander McQueen the go-to for floral dresses.
At London Fitting Rooms we specialise in couture alterations and work with a variety of materials. Our tailors are well-versed in leather work, feathers and fur alike.
We also celebrate contemporary elegance with staying power and Alexander McQueen floral dresses are one such trend. Here's some of the gown alterations where we've worked with these wonderful designs.
