Givenchy by Alexander McQueen, Fall Winter 1999 Ready-to-Wear. Photographed by Thierry Orban. Sarah Burton: ‘I remember one collection - the prêt-à-porter autumn/winter 1999-2000 collection - which involved a model in a Perspex robotic body. The guy who made the robot told us ten minutes before the model walked out, “If she sweats in the suit, she’s going to electrocute herself. So tell her not to sweat”.
White evening dress embellished in gold. The bubble hemline of the skirt hints at grassy meadows whereas, in contrast, the tight overworked effect of the upper half is reinforced by embroidery. A Sarah Burton creation for Alexander McQueen, photographed by Sølve Sundsbø.
