Description


An original pattern for Lee McQueen's Auntie Renée for a special event she was attending, which was eventually made at the request of McQueen in ivory silk crepe double-satin by Ruti Danan. The pattern consists of three pieces, which range in size from approximately 13.5 x 6 to 19.5 x 17.5, and features a single side pocket and short asymmetrical hem. His Auntie was very petite and this is one of a very few items made for McQueen's family as they never wanted to take advantage of his time, however, she was the one who lent him the money to complete his studies at Central St. Martins marking a critical resource for his early years. From The Alexander McQueen Archive of Ruti Danan. Learn more about Alexander McQueen.
