ALEXANDER McQUEEN READY-TO-WEAR SPRING-SUMMER 1997. Paris Fashion Week. RUNWAY MAGAZINE ® Collections Special Selection “Fashion Treasure”.
One of the greatest designers who reformed and influenced fashion, who let his “Angels and Demons” out. This is one of the first collections of Alexander McQueen, where we can see very recognizable identity of the designer and several design patterns, which were multiplied and repeated later by many designers.
“Walking on the water”, installation which permitted to the models literally walk on the water, has very special symbolic meaning to Alexander McQueen. It is of course about Jesus, and it is also about feeling of an artist passing trough the life, it is also feeling about special “magical” powers and being capable to move the mountains. That is why he so often repeated this installation trough the years for his shows.
