2006 Alexander McQueen Documented White Silk Crepe Chain Plunge High-Slit Gown

$3,800

About

Ethereal 2006 white documented runway show-stopper from the late and great Alexander Mcqueen. He was known for combining superb tailoring with a dramatic aesthetic inspired by various historical periods, British and Celtic tribalism and sexually charged fetish wear. McQueen's thematic shows were as much theater as fashion, with each piece of clothing worked into a dramatic narrative plotted by McQueen. The fabric on this gorgeous gown is a fully-lined ivory white silk-crepe. I love the built-in gold chain collar, illusion net plunge bodice and lean, long zipper-wrist sleeves. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust, skims the hip and flares out below the knee with a dramatic thigh-high slit. A hard-to-find and iconic early Alexander McQueen treasure. Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Waist:29 inches Hips:39 inches Total Length:63 inches This rare 2006 Alexander McQueen runway gown is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or stains. Perfectly working back-zipper. Runway belt not included. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.

About Alexander McQueen (Manufacturer)

British fashion designer Lee Alexander McQueen, the original creative engine behind the Alexander McQueen label, was beloved for his expert tailoring and theatrical runway shows. After his suicide in 2010, fans left tributes to the man and his talents outside Alexander McQueen boutiques worldwide. Record-breaking crowds visited the posthumous retrospective of the designer’s work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the Victoria and Albert in London.


McQueen’s inspirations came from many quarters — film, music, current events, history, his heritage and fashions of the past. His runway presentations were not just displays of clothing but were personal expressions of the zeitgeist, often touching on our cultural anxieties and concerns. McQueen’s own thoughts and feelings about love, death, gender, genocide, colonialism, global warming and the extinction of species all appear in his pieces.
