Alistair Carr Joins McQ
17 September 2012
ALISTAIR CARR is McQ's new head of design, the label confirmed this afternoon. His first collection at the helm of Alexander McQueen's diffusion line will be for pre-autumn/winter 2013-14.
The designer is responsible for the label's menswear, womenswear and accessories categories. He reports to Sarah Burton, who still holds overall creative control for the McQ brand image and its collections.
Carr left Pringle of Scotland in April this year, after spending just over a year as its design director. He previously worked at Balenciaga under Nicolas Ghesquière, Marni, Cacharel and Chloé. He also showed his own label at London Fashion Week for three seasons.
McQ made its first outing on the London Fashion Week schedule last season, held in a makeshift forest setting. While the event was a one-off, presentations will follow - although the format has not ben confirmed yet. Last week, the brand opened its debut store in London's Mayfair.
