Alexander McQueen opened with a series of snow-white elaborate mini skirts, layered with Disney-princess ruffles or embroidered flowers, and cinched at the waist with rather weapon-like metal belts—a new twist on the idea of a warrior princess. Sarah Burton continued Paris’ fur-trimmed trend: dresses, jackets and coats had plush fur collars and sleeves, looks were accompanied by platform fur snow-boots and, half-way through the show, was a series of pink feathery-fur dresses, As the collection progressed, so did Burton’s color scheme: pure white turned to pink and eventually lusty red and poisonous black.
