I don't think I'm the only one that's been a little underwhelmed by this fashion week, and it's too bad. It might be that we're all just cynical, or that our impossibly high expectations are not being met, or that we're just haven't seen anything spectacular so far. No offense to Chris Benz, Kris Van Assche, and Rag & Bone - but when those three are my favorite shows of the fall season, something's off in fashion.
Which is why I was so relieved to see Alexander McQueen's fall 2008 collection:
I can't imagine being in the audience at this show. This is one of the first shows of the season that would have taken my breath away had I been there.
This is shockingly beautiful, pure fantasy and fashion, and something I think we've really been missing this season.
