In Alexander McQueen’s Autumn/Winter 2007 occult fashion show all the models ritualistically walked along the red lines of a giant pentagram. The show kicked off with an invocation/occult prayer, which sounded like a black magic invocation to bring about possession. The prayer was read out cryptically with pictures of models within the inverted pyramid that is symbolically above the giant pentagram (pointing in the centre of the inner Pentagon). After the invocation a petrified scream is heard and the models start walking the Luciferian catwalk.
All patterns were cut on the stand by Lee Alexander McQueen. Each piece is unique, as was he.
Right before Alexander McQueen’s death, he had an eighty percent unfinished autumn/winter collection, 16 pieces, presented during PFW March 8th 2010, to a select handful of fashion editors in a mirrored, gilded salon at the 18th-century Hôtel de Clermont-Tonnerre. Editors said the show was hard to watch because it showed how McQueen was obsessed with the afterlife. The clothes had a medieval and religious look. Basic colours that were repetitively used were red, gold and silver with detailed embroidery. His models were accessorised to show his love for theatrical imagery.

Actually sad that he’s gone.

Sarah Burton: ‘I remember one collection - the prêt-à-porter autumn/winter 1999-2000 collection - which involved a model in a Perspex robotic body. The guy who made the robot told us ten minutes before the model walked out, “If she sweats in the suit, she’s going to electrocute herself. So tell her not to sweat”.
oh my god
