From Runway to Real Way

Alexander McQueen always put on incredible runway shows, there’s no doubt about it. You can’t describe them as anything less than spectacular. They are always my favorite shows to watch because you never know what you’re going to see or what is going to happen. We can only hope the incredible designs live on, despite the untimely death of Lee Alexander. While absolutely stunning, Alexander McQueen designs can sometimes be a little over-the-top for some of us. I love the drapey look and shimmery pink/gray color combo of this runway ensemble. So how can we appropriate the design and create a wearable version? With just a little research and creativity!
