See the Alexander McQueen Dress That Was Based on Sarah Burton's Wedding Gown


>> In anticipation
of "Savage Beauty,” this year's Alexander McQueen-focused Costume Institute gala and its accompanying exhibit which opens next month, Sarah Burton shared some of her favorite memories of working with the designer. Among the highlights, the Fall 2006 finale dress at left, of which Burton says: "This dress was actually based on my wedding dress — I got married two years earlier. We had to figure out how to make lace work in the round with those ruffles because Lee hated gathering. So we cut out all of the flowers from the lace and reappliqued it on tulle to make our own fabric. This is the collection most people remember as the one with Kate Moss in a hologram. Oh, my God, it was so beautiful. He loved that show.” [Vogue.com]
