Sarah Burton has become a household name since she designed Kate Middleton’s wedding frock, but with her AW 2012 collection for Alexander McQueen she showed she was a fashion force to be reckoned with.
Depicting the outlandish McQueen style, models clad in big fur creations, including puff short dresses and evening gowns, marched down the catwalk, while ruffles and pleats in skirts gave a nod to the the Elizabethan dinner party.

Mixing in today’s futuristic trend, these styles were teamed up with wide shield glasses, big structured belts and super high platform boots.

Further into the collection Burton added a more intricate feel with lace fabrics and feathers taking the main stage.

Tulle was also added to evening wear, although fur still made an appearance on cuffs and necklines.

Now to find a suitable event to show one of these off.
