And the list of inspired designers continues. Dyrad Designs, Entre Mares, Eshi Otawara and FIR all joined us with their personal inspirations and tributes to Alexander McQueen.
Dryad was inspired by a McQueen dress circa the 2008 Spring collection, her talent and ability to turn this dress into a stunning adornment amazes me.
Entre Mares design combined the silhouette of McQueen’s spring 2010 collection with the color and vibrance of spring 2008, what imagination.
Eshi Otawara was so gracious to join us for this tribute, not only a dear friend of ours, but a true inspiration to many SL designers herself. Her inspiration was the man himself, with her combination of steel blades contrasted by soft feathered wings.
FIR took McQueen’s fun fashion edgy look of Spring 2007 and mixed it with their own punk twist. Enough of me…here are the pics.
“The dress this necklace is the inspiration for was worn by Nicole Kidman to the CMA Awards. It highlights the lilac purple color with sugilite and charoite stones and mimics the black asian chrysanthemum, leaf and butterfly pattern using gunmetal.” ~Dryad Fall
“To cherish the memory of the genius Alexander McQueen, a favorite designer whose designs impress me a lot in SL and RL. ”Legend M” is simple but elegant. The inspiration is from McQueen’s unique tailoring married with a purple rose texture which depicts feeling of dreams, hope, peace and romance.” ~ Sykao Adamski
“It wasn’t but his death that made me look up Alexander McQueen – and I pity the time lost on my end. Bold, sensuous, elaborate, elegant, sharp as a blade yet gentle as a feather – the spirit of McQueen. Fly Home on the wings of divine inspiration. Till next time, <3.” ~Eshi Otawara
“Ringleader is an ode to Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer 2007 menswear collection. Inspired by the circus Alexander McQueen produced a collection of fun, brilliantly colored, and playful designs for the man about town with a sense of humor. We’ve taken this and put a bit of Rock N Roll edge that *FIR* is known for and held true to the spirit of McQueen’s collection. Combining many pieces inspired directly by McQueen and a few that come out of our imagination.” ~Rob1977 Moonites & Lexie Jansma
