sarah burton named creative director for alexander mcqueen
27 May 2010
sarahburton, a 16-year veteran of the alexandermcqueen fashion house, has been named creative director, according to british vogue. burton hastily and expertly finished mcqueen's fall/winter 2010-11 collection following the designer's suicide, just weeks before paris fashion week. that she was chosen as sucessor is not surprising given her 10-year history as head of design for womenswear and her intimate knowledge of late designer's vision.
