Sarah Burton Appointed At Alexander McQueen

-------

The show goes on. It was announced today that Sarah Burton (pictured)—McQueen’s right-hand woman for 14 years, and since 2000 the head of design for his womenswear—has been appointed creative director of the Alexander McQueen brand. (She also finished the Fall 2010 collection after his death.) “The creation of modern, beautifully crafted clothes was at the heart of Lee’s vision. I intend to stay true to his legacy,” Burton said in a statement. So does his corporate backer, Gucci Group. CEO Robert Polet added that the company plans to give Burton and her team “full support…in the coming years.”
