Showcasing a beautiful dress, the juxtaposition between the nude and pure black motif makes this piece really stand out.
McQueen often used tailored pieces and geared them towards the feminine side by using strong silhouette mixed with a softer side of fabric or print, here Burton has used one of McQueen's most popular methods to pay homage to the designer, the dress is strong with the leather belt but made softer by the cascading hem and soft collar, the tailored suit becomes the strongest of the two but the recurring print of floral design has made it slightly more feminine whilst still retaining the powerful profile that the suit creates.
Again Burton has mixed strong and soft in the dress to stay with the theme of McQueen, the bodice is tailored and the shoulders are strong, but this is juxtaposed with the bouffant feather skirt and pale colour.
Whilst Burton has done an amazing job, she has kept within the lines of what McQueen was all about
(female strength mixed with sensuality)
she has also shown signs of what is to come with a recurring theme of floral designs it shows the brand is being re-born, it will take time before the brand will move in extreme directions but if there was ever a lady for the job Burton is the one to do it.
