After the amazing designer, who took his runways and collection to the next level by turning it into a theater of unique clothing, passed away, Sarah Burton picked his collection up. Working side-by-side with Alexander McQueen for 15 years, there was no other person who could take McQueen's collection and carry on his legacy.
For the Spring 2011 Ready-To-Wear, Burton softened the stage. Something that was a key part of McQueen's collections and was usually dark. Taking also, McQueen's signature tailcoat, Burton also softened it with its edges unfinished. Though she might have made minor changes to McQueen's runway, she certainly will not let McQueen's unique designs die down.
