2009 Alexander McQueen Silk Satin Dress

When I go over a McQueen dress the thing I always marvel at is how close in construction it is to its older, hand tailored counter parts. If not for the label and slightly different grade fabrications you almost get the thought that you are handling a piece of very well made vintage. He excelled in his tailoring and did not scrimp or save on seaming or fabric when he made a dress. The dress was made properly and in traditional manners with all the little details one comes to expect in high end vintage. This dress is a fabulous example of that. It is impeccable tailored and the lining is as high a grade of silk as the exterior. Small details abound - a zipper set so that it all but disappears from sight, gussets under the arm, deep pleating worked in the skirting and bodice and hand placed work through the hem so it has the slightest drawing in to suggest a tulip silhouette. Ties sit at each side of the waist to cinch it in and the front plunges. It is beautiful and wearable and a great piece of fashion history and testament to his genius. Excellent condition.
