Alexander McQueen Joan (AW98)
All about Alexander McQueen. A true artist to his core, an extremely gifted designer, a beautiful mind with a dark side. Just like other artists, it’s not a surprise when unresolved interpersonal conflicts, demons, blend with extreme, gifted talent and produce remarkable, timeless art.
Joan of Arc, a dark political overtone. She led the French army to victory in a battle against the English in the 15th century and was later captured, found guilty of heresy and burned at the stake. Industrial lamps swing scarily above the runway, models wear red contact lenses, chain mail, silver-plated metal armor, elegant dresses, sharp suits and floor-length coats. For the finale, a masked model walks to the center and a ring of fire bursts into flames around her.
