Alexander McQueen - Paris RTW - Spring/Summer 2015 picture
Overview:

‘Etymology Of Desire’ and ‘Prehistory Of Desire’ (2010) form the centrepiece of the Alexander McQueen women's ready-to-wear Spring/Summer 2015 show in Paris Fashion Week.

Cast from real flowers and parading, as Quinn puts it “the overwhelming sensuality of the natural world, whose life force is one of pure desire”, the orchids meditate on the human obsession of ideal beauty, achieved through the manipulation, modification and control of nature.
