Alexander McQueen Wedding Dresses
News of British fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s suicide sent ripples of shock throughout the fashion world this morning. I’ve always liked his creative use of textures, the structure of his clothes, and how he used his collections to make real statements (see the Highland Rape collection from 1995). I wish I’d been rich enough to buy a pair of shoes or a purse when he was still alive. :\
Alexander McQueen never released a bridal collection per se, but he has a few aisle-friendly white dresses for the fashion-forward bride. Check them out below.

This crinoline dress isn’t exactly aisle-friendly but it sure is an interesting take on the wedding gown. From the Givenchy Spring-Summer 2000 collection.
I don’t remember which collection this dress is from but I love the lace booties!
From Alexander McQueen’s spring/summer 2003 collection.

Rest in peace.
