Alexander McQueen’s Most Beautiful Rose Creations

In the ’90s Alexander McQueen’s earliest collections became iconic through an embellishment of the “Rose”, creating a long running theme for the fashion house. The quintessentially British blossom has been one of the brand’s most persistent motifs; carried through by McQueen and Sarah Burton. Over three decades the rose has been interpreted by both designers in a variety of ways: cut through leather as McQueen accomplished in 1997, pleated and tucked into a blooming frock as Burton did in 2019, or stitched through burlaps and muslins, an idea that both explored over the years. “To me, it’s the queen of flowers, the most British flower of all, a symbol of femininity,” says Burton.
