Alexander McQueen (again) spring / summer 2007

Although Alexander McQueen is my favourite designer, Elie Saab is a very close second.The delicate beautiful detailing on all his dress is stunning.I think these dresses show good examples of getting the placement of your motifs and embellishment right.
