A prototype/toile of design created by McQueen in suiting fabric with mixture of wool and synthetic which was used frequently by the studio at the time. The neckline is diagonal and sleeves are slit from wrist to elbow. It also features a slash from the waist upwards going towards the bust-line. The item also shows the raw seams and fusing which was critical for this type of fabric due to how it was woven. A visible metal open zip follows the entire length of the center back. Accompanied by the original four-piece card pattern, with portions ranging in size from 5.5 x 23.5 to 15 x 29. From The Alexander McQueen Archive of Ruti Danan. Learn more about Alexander McQueen.
