Behind the Scenes at McQueen S/S 2012

"I was thinking about a woman as an object of desire. We go to such lengths to adorn ourselves that we almost become our clothes or are taken over by them. This is a collection about excess - an exploration of ideals of beauty at their most extreme." - Sarah Burton, Creative Director of Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen introduces a short backstage film, created by young filmmaker Sean Frank, featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of Sarah Burton and the Alexander McQueen team preparing for the Spring/Summer 2012 runway show, which took place during Paris Fashion Week 4th October, 2011.
