Backstage with the masters

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to backstage at a major fashion show? Or, even more to the point, what it must be like to be backstage at an Alexander McQueen show? You know, up close and personal with the masters. Well, unless you've got Sarah Burton on speed dial and can make it happen for the next London Fashion Week, one of the ways of making your dream come true is by means of a this beautiful, intimate and awe-inspiring short film created by Sean Frank before the house's spring summer 2013 collection unveiling.

I already knew of the dramatic intricacies and detailing of the gowns and the tailored suits from the collection photos, I must have poured over them at least a dozen times trying to see if I can imagine something more beautiful. Still, it was mind blowing to see them closer, to understand the texture and the painstaking craftsmanship that goes into the making of a dress, for example, that has a skirt made with over 9000 flower petals - each applied by hand. It's the stuff of wonder, I tell you. Don't you agree?
