S/S 2001 Alexander McQueen Dress

This is an amazing and rare early piece by Alexander Mcqueen. It is the production dress that was done based on the combination of the two runway pictures shown. This was common with his earlier pieces - a more practical version went into the actual stores. I have had several early McQueen pieces like this. The dress is fantastic - it is a sheath dress whose shape is derived by the attached wrapped obi belt feel embroidered sash. You have to step into the dress and through the sash to get it on - it does not open otherwise. It is gathered in a flat pleat bow on one shoulder and the other end highlights the V notch skirt. It is immaculately cut and made of men's suiting. As innovative now as when is debuted. Highly collectible!

19" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Waist: 15" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
18" flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Length: 43" from mid-back of neck to bottom hem

Fully lined in black silky rayon and closes with a back zipper. Note there are some fade marks from being stored or displayed in sunlight. Please super size pictures to view. It still wearable because of where the fade marks ended up. Since it is highly collectible and an early piece by Alexander McQueen, it is sold as is and priced accordingly. Original store tag attached.
