Alexander McQueen’s version of Halloween

Alexander-Mcqueen-pre-fall-2009The work of Alexander McQueen resonates particularly strongly for me at this time of year. As an adult who loves Halloween, I’m always on the hunt for costume inspiration, particularly the kind that allows us to wear high-fashion in new and creative ways.

Alexander McQueen made fabulous work, both in concept and technical creation. Often considered provocative and over-the-top, McQueen managed to push fashion to new levels through embracing the fine lines between costume and couture. While not directly referencing any specific character, these outfits all exude the feel of adults playing dress-up.
