I thought I'd share with you guys what has to be my favourite runway moment...it was the finale of Alexander McQueen's Spring Summer collection in 1999, and cemented his place as the most coveted new talent at that time. I love the genuine fear in Shalom Harlow's face, as the industrial robots continue to taunt her. The dancing machines are actually quite beautiful. And Shalom's performance is so so powerful - she's like something out of a dream. Iconic & emotional. R.I.P x

haha I'd hate to think how many times they practiced it, and all those dressed they trialled. How ever many it was, it was worth it. xx
