Were there any mentions or tributes to Alexander McQueen during fashion week?
Not while I was there. (The first day I attended the shows was Sunday, Feb 14.) As you probably know on Feb. 13 the Fashion for Relief/Haiti show opened with a verbal dedication to him, and closed with 7 of his designs being worn by supermodels and his longtime friend Daphne Guinness, her face swathed in tulle. London Fashion Week started on the 19th with a dedication to him by the Chairman of the British Fashion Council and a tribute wall mounted in the tents. I’m afraid I was not privy to anything during New York Fashion Week – except an issue of The Daily being dedicated to the late designer.
The fashion world seemed to still be reeling from the news during the week of February just after his death.
