Amazing, this show puts into perspective how commercially driven, bland and boring most of fashion week has been this season. The end piece is stunning, this isn't fashion this is art!

I'm in love. I can't wait to see the full video. I don't see what the problem is with him re-interpreting elements from previous collections especially when it's done so well. A few pieces aren't my style, but I'm in love with the presentation. The detail work here looks amazing though I'd like him to incorporate more of his tailored pieces into his work once again. The prints are gorgeous, but there are a few too many looks that feature them.

The collection stirs up a lot of fear in people and its idea is quite repelling, but at the same time you're really interested to see what is coming next. That's McQueen's signature.

While the shoes are probably the most vile creations to ever appear on the runway, just about everything else is pure magic.
It reminds me of that recent movie District 9, where the human starts to transform into an alien. I think that's what McQueen is trying to convey here. Transformation from being human into something very anti-ethnic or something culturally unacceptable? Maybe from a past experience. McQueen always talks about his past as a contributor in his collections.

The leather pieces are the best! They're so beautiful.

WOW just wow. Amazing. Spectatular. Beyond. Just fantastic.

I can see these off the catwalk and I would so wear them.

If I was a model I wouldn't have done this show. Those shoes would have killed me. Major props to the models who did. You are superwomen.
