Sarah Burton Glad to Be at McQueen
Sarah Burton is "glad" she agreed to take over as Alexander McQueen's creative director.
The designer - who was given the coveted role following the tragic suicide of the label's founder Alexander McQueen in February 2010 - says she was initially unsure about doing the job, but looking back, she is pleased she did.
"He was such a genius; inspiring and funny and an incredible man. I could never pretend to be him but when I look back now, I'm glad that I took the job - because it kept the studio alive in his spirit, and it kept the team together. Because what did he work so hard for all those years if it was all just going to disappear?"
Sarah - who created Duchess Catherine's wedding dress when she married Prince William in April - recently said she regards the Alexander McQueen team to be "like a family" feels "privileged" to be part of the brand: "Every day, I love what I do and I think it's a gift and privilege to love your job. The McQueen team is like family. We are so passionate about what we do and it's so important that we have established a couture-standard atelier in Britain."
