The late Alexander McQueen's feminine fantasies live on through the company's new creative director, Sarah Burton. The fourteen-year employee and close assistant to McQueen put out her first spring line to a tense, anticipating crowd with incredible success. I can't think of a bigger, more courageous pair of shoes one could be expected to fill, but Burton put on a show with all of McQueen's dramatic production, as well as her own, more livable touch.
P.S. I heard there's going to be a tribute exhibit to McQueen starting in May at the Met, so thumb-it up to the city if you have to. It should be nothing short of spectacular.
