Sarah Burton talks McQueen with T mag in FALL fashion issue

The fab T, The New York Times Style Magazine: Women’s Fall Fashion Issue is out with many goodies to read and view. One of the pieces that caught our attention in the latest issue of T is an interview with Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton. Unassuming, nice, and “everything her magically haunted collection is not”.

“People can be rich, so long as they’re nice; they can be lazy at school or useless at work, but if they’re nice, it doesn’t matter. Nice is not the same as “great” or “lovely” or even “sweet” — it’s a category of well-pitched, ordinary decency, and a person who has niceness has everything. To my mind, Sarah Burton is not merely one of the world’s greatest designers, she just happens to be the nicest, and she is about to enjoy the flowering of her life.”

Sarah opens up with Andrew O’Hagan for T Mag and talks about McQueen, how she she was heartbroken, finished the collection, and assumed the role of head designer. The “first-rate talent” chats more about the wedding dress of the decade for the Duchess of Cambridge, growing up, and the world of Alexander McQueen.
