Iridescent was the word to describe Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 Collection during the Paris Fashion Week last October.The award-winning fashion designer who likes scuba diving, took his inspiration from the colorful world under the sea. His designs featured digitally-enhanced prismatic fabrics, flowing skirts, wavy cuts, and shimmering sequins and beads. The show gave the audience the illusion of boarding Captain Nemo’s submarine in “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
In creating this illusion, the models wore form-fitting dresses that almost looked like an extension of their bodies. Their hair was swept up in curves that looked like fins and they wore gigantic boots with curved heels that looked like fish.
Alexander McQueen is known for his avant-garde designs but his Spring 2010 Collection is by far his most precocious creation.
