This Fashion Month, Sarah Burton had a lot more than just a collection to deliver; she was pregnant with twins too. But that didn’t stop Alexander McQueen’s creative director from presenting a 10-piece collection that captured our imagination with its spellbinding array of Elizabethan-inspired gowns and ecclesiastical gilt work. Not your average 9-to-5 getup, that's for sure.
Yes, the signature dramatic detailing (hello, high-neck ruff collar) and pin-sharp tailoring is all here, but the designs ooze the kind of after-dark glamour we can imagine wearing in reality. If our bank managers permitted it, that is. Click through to see ten of our favourites. (Alexander McQueen)
