Catalogue Note

‘This show was dedicated to Isabella Blow, who liked to obscure her face with hats and veils. The brief was to create a metallic structure that would partially cover the face, acting not only as decoration but as protection. The metal frame envelopes the torso and seamlessly becomes part of the dress – something that Isabella would have loved.’ S.L.

Created for Alexander McQueen's 'La Dame Bleue' Collection, Spring/Summer 2008.
