Sarah Burton designing for Alexander McQueen
After months of speculation, finally today, Sarah Burton was announced new head of design for Alexander McQueen. Previously this year, Gucci Group had decided to carry on with the successful brand after the eponymous designer's tragic suicide in February 2010.
Finally rumours that designers like king-of-goth Gareth Pugh might take over Mr. McQueens realms were defeated by the decision to acclaim one of the strong forces at Alexander McQueen's side head of design to unify operations and appoint somebody from the inside of the company.
We shall hope so.
