Sarah Burton is the creative force firmly at the helm of the Alexander McQueen brand. Now the new flagship store has opened in central London. Starting as an intern in the early days, she succeeded to Creative Director of the brand after McQueen’s death. Continuing to push the magnificently brilliant creative identity created by him.
The evolution of the brand has been meteoric. From a small Hoxton studio in the early days to recently opening an amazing new flagship store on Bond Street in February. The store is three-storeys high and was designed by architect Smiljan Radic, reflecting the uniqueness of the McQueen brand. On the top floor of the store is a gallery space and it houses archive pieces of the collections. Also a number of different events from talks to exhibitions are run for young creatives, to connect and celebrate the absolute genius of a man who was Alexander McQueen.
