The venue for the fashion show was the Orangerie Museum in Paris. A bare pine floor, a dozen unpainted wooden columns and swelling canvas canvases on the ceiling - such an unadorned space perfectly emphasized the special beauty, femininity and grace of the new collection.

Models took to the catwalk to the accompaniment of the London Symphony Orchestra, whose musicians were also dressed in outfits from Alexander McQueen. And if at the end of the fashion show, usually all the guests rush to the exit and strive to leave the hall as soon as possible, this time the final was obviously delayed.

Leading designer Sarah Burton went out to bow to loud applause from the audience, not alone, but together with six dozen workers in her atelier, including not only tailors, but also security guards and HR workers.

Smiling, they were in no hurry to leave the fashion scene, receiving warm greetings and grateful applause from the audience, which was the best proof of the pleasure they received from this unique fashion show. Indeed, absolutely all employees of the company worked painstakingly to create fashionable outfits, who had to get together more than once to completely embroider by hand two amazing dresses from the new collection.

In her comments on the show, Sarah Burton said, "I love it when people take the time to create things together, the time to meet and talk, the time to reunite with the world." And this idea of reunification and cohesion became the main theme of the fashion line.

According to the designer, when you put the right values into creating clothes, when you treat people and their traditions with care and respect, then it is then that the best things are born. This collection by Alexander McQueen is a clear example of this.

Here, not only amazing outfits amaze, but also the very prehistory of the creation of a fashion line. First, Sarah Burton redesigned and reinvented new looks from the brand's archives. Secondly, lace, tulle and organza from past collections were used to create the clothes.

Thirdly, Damascus was woven at the only mini-production that survived in Ireland. Fourthly, the linen for the collection was made on a special farm using a unique, almost lost technology. And fifthly, the designer chose the types of flowers disappearing in nature.

Among the images presented in the new collection, according to fashion critics, there is not a single unsuccessful one. Trouser suits, gorgeous dresses, lace or leather outfits, translucent blouses or a fantastic organza dress - there are both luxurious casual looks and ensembles worthy of the red carpet.

The Alexander McQueen color scheme for spring-summer 2020 is still dominated by black and white, which is diluted with ivory and gray. Pale blue tone and floral patterns became a bright accent. Spectacular images were complemented by gold necklaces, bracelets, massive chains, large jewelry with pearl drops. The waist was emphasized by wide belts, and as a shoe, for example, I was surprised by sandals with a flower-shaped heel. I would like to note that every detail is thought out to the smallest detail.
