20 Alexander McQueen Runway Moments that blew my mind

Not only did he design breath-taking clothing, he presented it in spectacular runway shows.

Here are my twenty favourite moments from 1994 to 2010;

1. The lace-masks of F/W 1996`s 'Dante' collection


McQueen's theatrical 'Dante' collection was staged at a church in Spitalfields in 1996. The show opened with organ music filling the church that was soon drowned out by gunfire. Models walked the runway looking wearing wore crucifix masks, denim splashed with bleach and lots of lace. McQueen commented that the collection was "not so much about death, but the awareness that it's there".

2. Models walking on water in F/W 1997`s 'It`s A Junge Out There'

2-1997-It’s a Jungle Out There-water

The F/W 1997 collection was shown in Borough Market. The backdrop was a screen of corrugated iron, which was covered in bullet holes. Models with horns and painted faces walked around car wrecks wearing cowboy boots and traditionally tailored pieces made out of hides and leathers.

3. The fire ring ending 'Joan' in F/W 1998


The finale of the show was marked by a blaze of fire that encircled a bondage-clad representation of Joan of Arc’s ghost in order to celebrate the power of femininity against the institutionalized machismo of both French military leadership and modern dayreligious institution. While the set reflected the ecclesiastical cell of Joan of Arc and the clothes themselves were given a medieval context, it was apparent that McQueen is contained and operates in a suspended past space as a way to process structural inequalities on the social and economic level. What resonated highly with the critics of the presentation was the assertion of femininity and reminder of past repression of women within the political arena, a notion that would be revisited two years later when McQueen relocated to Paris.

4. Models ice-skating in snow & ice for F/W 1999`s 'The Overlook'

4-1999fall-The Overlook

McQueen's "The Overlook" fall/winter collection was based on Stanley Kubrick's 1980 film 'The Shinning' and featured models ice-skating wearing elaborate pieces. The artificial snow landscape was the perfect backdrop to show off luxurious furs, soft knits, shiny bustiers, trapeze and swing skirts and floor length coats.

5. The wooden legs in S/S 1999`s 'No. 13'

5-1999SS-double amputee model Aimee Mullins down the catwalk on carved wooden legs

McQueen's 1999 spring/summer collection opened with leg-amputee athlete/model Aimee Mullins walking the runway wearing prosthetic legs, a rigid leather bodice and a delicate lace skirt all designed by McQueen.

6. Robots spray-painting Sharlom Harlow in the end of S/S 1999`s 'No. 13' collection


McQueen caused a sensation by ending his show with model Shalom Harlow standing in a white dress on a rotating platform, being spray painted by robotic arms adapted from a car factory. It was an extraordinary statement: a most beautiful moment, but menacing too… vandalism almost; and it spoke volumes about the relationship between man and machine, between fashion and mass production… the seeming contradiction of automated machines creating something truly one-off, before the very eyes of the audience. Never mind this was just a part of a mere fashion show, it could easily have passed off as an art installation in its own right, as Modernist ‘mechanical ballet’ performances and the like sprang to mind.

7. A model hanging above a bed of spikes in S/S 2000`s 'Eye'


McQueen's 2000 spring/summer show marked his first showing in New York and it was met with mixed reviews. Fashion's "enfant terrible" turned the runway into a terrifying bed of metal spikes and nails and models were lifted into the air showing off sheer knits, body hugging jerseys and a re-working of the burka.

8. The insane models in S/S 2001`s 'Voss' collection

8- 2001spring

The audience sat around a double-mirrored cube, which, when lit from inside, revealed itself to be a mental-hospital holding cell. Demented girls, wearing hospital headbands and everything from extraordinary mussel-shell skirts to impossibly chic pearl-colored cocktail dresses, slithered and strutted while uselessly attempting to fly over the cuckoo's nest.

There were gothic, theatrical pieces, like a dress with a miniature castle and rat posing as a shoulder pad; a top made out of a jigsaw puzzle; and a huge feathered creation with stuffed eagles suspended over the model's head, poised to attack à la Hitchcock. But amidst all the insanity, there was a cornucopia of startlingly elegant—and wearable—pantsuits, flouncy party dresses, and even a spectator pump or two.

9. The finale of S/S 2001`s 'Voss'


After everyone thought it was all over, another cube within the psychiatric ward-cum-runway opened up to reveal a portly nude woman, her face covered by a mask, breathing through a tube, surrounded by fluttering moths. It was a truly shocking and enthralling tableau: Francis Bacon via Leigh Bowery and Lucien Freud.

10. The wicked clowns on the rotating Merry Go Round of F/W 2001


Cavorting and gyrating around poles, a posse of wicked clowns took over the stage wearing shiny patent-leather jackets and jeans, scalloped coats and skirts, S&M overcoats, skintight leather pants and ornate military jackets that would've put Napoleon to shame. A nearly naked princess turned up in little more than a feathered headdress, a net gown and a few chains; her cohorts wore frayed sweaters with giant skulls and bones, and long suit jackets that became dresses as they wrapped around the body and then draped at the side.


One model dragged a golden skeletton around on her leg.

11. The "impaled" model of S/S 2002`s 'Dance of the Twisted Bull' collection

11-2002Spring-The Dance of The Twisted Bull3-horz

With scenes from a bullfight projected onto a screen at the back of the runway and models in bicorn hats, matador jackets and flamenco skirts, this, McQueen’s first ready-to-wear collection produced in partnership with the Gucci Group and shown in Paris, is amongst the most clear examples of the play between masculine and feminine that characterises his work. Body-skimming jersey cutaway to mimic harnessing is paired with sharp, low-slung tailoring, crisp white shirts are layered with laced corsetry in traditional Savile Row fabrics. Jewel encrusted epaulettes, polka dots, ruffled, tiered skirts and more crafted out of what look like Spanish fans are all executed with the complexity of pattern and attention to detail McQueen is known for.

12. The wind tunnel at the F/W 2003 'Scanners' show


A glass wind-tunnel corridor bridging a snow-covered wasteland: that was the bleak techno-meets-nature setting for Alexander McQueen’s mind trip for fall. "I wanted it to be like a nomadic journey across the tundra," he said. "A big, desolate space, so that nothing would distract from the work."

The clothes, sculpted into his signature nip-waisted, stiff A-line skirt silhouettes, exhibited all the intense craft and some of the shapes that he learned during his stint at Givenchy couture. It bumped his ready-to-wear up to a new level, and if the plot—which traveled through Eurasian ethnic into punk and on to motocross.

13. The S/S 2005 Chess-board


Using a futuristic chess game as mise en scene, McQueen this time offers up an intricately worked and determinedly youthful collection featuring pieces that whisper of fashion fantasy although always with a typically tough edge. And so a floral print, primrose yellow baby doll dress is finished with signature leather harnessing, for example, amply demonstrating the play between power and vulnerability that the designer has by now made his own. The starting point is filmic again. This time clothes are inspired by Picnic At Hanging Rock - quintessential McQueen territory given its ultra-feminine and innocent spirit undermined by a significantly dark undercurrent. Everything from Edwardian children’s wear to embroidered fairground horses makes an appearance. The chessboard motif allows the designer to explore different types of women – Americans face Japanese on the board, redheads are placed opposite Latin Americans and so forth.

14. The head-dresses of F/W 2006`s 'Widows of Culloden'


With this collection McQueen revisits the subject matter of The Highland Rape – the show with which he made his name – but applies to similar territory a sophistication and expertise that reflects his experience as both couturier and designer. The inspiration here is highly personal – the designer’s own heritage – which goes at least some way towards explaining the exquisite hand-craftsmanship that goes into each piece as well, of course, as bird head-dresses and McQueen tartan. The collection is luxurious and romantic but melancholic and even austere at the same time.

15. The Kate Moss hologram in the end of F/W 2006


Inside an empty glass pyramid, a mysterious puff of white smoke appeared from nowhere and spun in midair, slowly resolving itself into the moving, twisting shape of a woman enveloped in the billowing folds of a white dress. It was Kate Moss, her blonde hair and pale arms trailing in a dream-like apparition of fragility and beauty that danced for a few seconds, then shrank and dematerialized into the ether.

16. 'The face' of F/W 2007

16-2007fall-In Memory of Elizabeth Howe, Salem, 1692

Did Romina Lanaro wear a mask or dramatic make-up in the 'In Memory of Elizabeth Howe, Salem, 1692' collection?

17. The white feather dress of F/W 2009`s 'The Horn of Plenty'

17-2009fall-The Horn of Plenty

A dress completely made of feathers with its overskirt pulled up vertically to hide the model's head.

18. The metal-armour in Fall 2009`s 'Horn of Plenty'

18-2009fall-The Horn of Plenty

Subtitled 'Everything But The Kitchen Sink', the concept here is a play between a profound respect for and the subversion of the haute couture tradition. The set features a pile of debris - everything from rubbish bags and crushed car parts to broken fairground horses and castaway chairs - much of it recycled props from past McQueen shows. The clothes themselves draw on haute couture signatures - Dior's iconic hounds tooth check, the elegance of Audrey Hepburn in Givenchy - and takes them apart at the seams. Aforementioned check breaks away into a magpie print inspired by M.C. Escher, or is scarred with vinyl reminiscent of the splatter paintings of Jackson Pollock. Gowns are crafted in what looks like bin-liners or broken records but are in fact highly expensive paper nylon and lacquered silk respectively. Hats echo the ordurous theme - washing machine hoses, umbrellas, lampshades and more are transformed into objects of beauty. McQueen's models stand taller and prouder than ever in hugely elevated footwear. All in all, this is power-dressing at its most elaborate and extreme.

19. Alexander McQueen wearing a bunny costume at the end of S/S 2009

19-2009spring-Natural Dis-tinction Un-natural Selection

The genious himself appeared in a bunny costume in the end of his 'Natural Dis-tinction Un-natural Selection' collection.

20. The underwater-atmosphere of 'Plato`s Atlantis' in S/S 2010


When Charles Darwin wrote The Origin Of The Species, no one could have known that the ice cap would melt, that the waters would rise and that life on earth would have to evolve in order to live beneath the sea once more or perish. We came from water and now, with the help of stem cell technology and cloning, we must go back to it to survive. 'When the waters rise, humanity will go back to the place from whence it came. ‘but then again, I’m no Nostradamus…’ said Alexander McQueen.

What was your favourite Alexander McQueen runway moment?

It's In the Bag

Welcome to It's In the Bag, where we interview our favorite people to see what's in their bag and learn a little more about them.

This week we are featuring my sister-in-law, Xio. She has a great sense of style and always looks so put together. Here's a little more about our featured friend.

What are two fun facts about yourself?
I'm a brand new marathon runner, and I've danced with Prince on stage.

What bag are you rocking in your picture?
MICHAEL Michael Kors Hamilton Large Tote in Black. It's the perfect size, fabulous leather, and I love the gold chains. It's a classic black handbag with a bit of an edge.

What are two things in your bag right now that you can't live without?
Chapstick and hand sanitizer! I can't stand it when my lips get dry, and I'm a huge germaphobe! There are plenty more I can't live without in my purse (cell phone, wallet, keys, etc.), but those are the top two that would drive me to the brink of insanity.

Who Is your favorite designer and why?
My favorite designer is Diane von Furstenberg because her designs are sophisticated and chic and made to accentuate a woman's most flattering areas of the body. She's not afraid of bold colors and prints, and I'm all about those two.

What do you do when you are not blogging? What is your job?
I work in sales, marketing, and merchandising for a local high-end boutique called McMullen. I manage our social media pages, create email campaigns, design print ads, merchandise and manage the the store. Check us out: http://www.shopmcmullen.com/

How would you describe your personal style?
I'm quite the chameleon. Some days I dress pretty girly and feminine with lots of "floral" and "flowy" going on and other days I'll dress completely different in tall combat boots, distressed denim, tank and a leather studded vest. If I had to summarize in two words, my personal style would be clean and edgy because my style ranges in both spectrums.

With Love From the West Coast,

Rusch Hour: Toasting Montauk's New "Summer Camp"
31 May 2011, 8:11 pm

With its fishing village roots, robust surf scene, and long association with art world figures like Andy Warhol, Montauk has always been the cooler alternative to the Hamptons—and while some may grumble that the place is becoming too popular, it still stands safely apart from its over-gentrified neighbors along Route 27. One of the attractions of Ruschmeyer’s, a newly renovated “summer camp” from Ben Pundole, formerly of the Mondrian Hotel Group, and Rob McKinley, who opened the nearby Surf Lodge a few summers ago, is that it fits right in with the area’s laid-back mood. It features a rustic lakefront setting, a ring of casual but stylishly appointed guest cabins, and a restaurant where Pundole and McKinley have partnered with the team behind lower Manhattan’s Fat Radish to put a focus on fish and other locally sourced ingredients (don’t miss the clam pizza if it’s on the list of nightly specials). The property also houses a nautically themed late-night hangout, the Electric Eel (below), which could put a serious crimp in your early-morning surfing plans. For those who insist on exercise, there are yoga sessions, a rack of handsome bikes, and, more essentially, a massage room, among other options. Ruschmeyer’s opened over Memorial Day weekend with a friends-and-family gathering that included a Saturday night dinner attended by Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber, Rogan Gregory, Pamela Love, Magnus Berger, and Tenzin Wild. After the meal, Waris Ahluwalia stepped outside to take a call with his newest collaborators, the alternative hip-hop group Chiddy Bang. For an upcoming movie role, the jeweler and actor is adding the title of rapper to his résumé.
