About

Exquisite silk dress with parrot feather motif, from Alexander McQueen , spring 2003.

Sz 42

The bust was let out expertly on the back to accomadate the generous belle poitrine of the owner of the dress.

Could be removed to reduce the bust.The inner corsetry work, with boning, is a work of art.



This dress is from McQueen's seminal pirate collection where this was the final look. The dress suggests a pirate who has been shipwrecked and traveled up a tropical river to find parrots in the trees. This dress has a built in bodice corset with a chiffon overlay. In the back two chiffon panels suggest bird wings.The amazingly colored, whisper-thin fabric was actually printed by Jonathan Saunders who was working for McQueen at the time. A glorious tribute to the wearer and the spirit of McQueen.
