The Alexander McQueen fw 2015 show was held inside La Conciergerie’s hall of the guards, one of the largest surviving medieval parts of the site, and it was the perfect backdrop for the glamorous collection.
Punk meets romance seemed to be the theme with pink, red and black ruffle pieces floating down the runway. McQueen’s signature pairing of leather and lace was also abundant. The details took our breath away!
We had the rare privilege of going backstage after the show to have a closer look at the very intricate collection. Of course, with my production-oriented mind, I loved seeing how they set up backstage and all the elements that help a show go perfectly. The meticulousness with which everything was laid out for the 36 looks to hit the runway smoothly definitely didn’t disappoint (even the pincushions were organized and orderly!). Amazing! –x LM
