Paris Fashion Week: Alexander McQueenThursday, 07 October 2010
“I thought it was amazing and as if the McQueen woman had been unshackled somehow, she was freer than before,” said Alexandra Shulman. “Sarah’s done brilliantly – and now it will be interesting to see where she moves it on from here because the McQueen woman was rather complicated and dark - and there was nothing dark about that collection.”
Tim Blanks from Style.com said of the show: "It's hard to conceive of a more thankless task in fashion than taking over from a designer as galvanizing as Alexander "Lee" McQueen, but Sarah Burton is precisely the kind of quiet powerhouse who has what it takes to grab hold of his legacy and drag it where it needs to go to survive and prosper.
