Description


A one-of-a-kind showpiece dress with diagonal cut neck that extends to expose one breast and features centre rear zipper. This unique silk rayon piece was created using layers of car spray paint and resin. The bodice is crafted with clear plastic wrap overlaid with thread and was sprayed and dipped to achieve a deconstructed effect by McQueen colleague and fabric designer Simon Ungless. Alexander McQueen would have personally worked on this piece cutting and assembling the garment by hand. Due to the delicate nature of the techniques used, this item is only able to be displayed two-dimensionally. From The Alexander McQueen Archive of Ruti Danan. Learn more about Alexander McQueen.
