Re-look: Alexander McQueen VOSS Spring/Summer 2001

In McQueen’s Words

“There’s blood beneath every layer of skin.”
The Observer Magazine, October 7, 2001

In McQueen’s Words
“My friend George and I were walking on the beach in Norfolk, and there were thousands of [razor-clam] shells. They were so beautiful, I thought I had to do something with them. So, we decided to make [a dress] out of them. . . . The shells had outlived their usefulness on the beach, so we put them to another use on a dress. Then Erin [O’Conner] came out and trashed the dress, so their usefulness was over once again. Kind of like fashion, really.”
