PARIS…This enchanting collection from Alexander McQueen, a fairy tale inspired by the days of the British Raj and the court of Queen Victoria, is being hailed as this designer’s best in years. There were nods to some of the great couturiers of the twentieth century, starting with the draped and classic styling of Paul Poiret and ending with a sequence of bejeweled, crinolined and ermine-coated looks that recalled the work of Norman Hartnell and Hardy Aimes, British designers of the ’50s both of whom were by appointment to her majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. McQueen stated that his inspiration came from the idea of a young girl living in the 600 year old elm in his garden who escapes a life of darkness to marry an Indian prince. He called the collection, “The Girl who Lived in a Tree” The Fashion Office is calling it pure magic.
