A homage to Art Deco by Givenchy when it was helmed by the late Alexander McQueen. The beaded scales on the gown, the elaborate pearl head piece and sleeves were as much about craftsmanship at its most elevated as it was about couture’s absence of any limits in imagination. Ironically McQueen was not happy at Givenchy, saying the house constrained his creativity.
McQueen took his own life in 2010, leaving behind a final collection that was as haunting as it was beautiful. Photo from Vogue, March 1998.
