Tuesday evening Julia Nobis opened the Alexander McQueen show at 5 bis rue Curial in Paris. True to the house’s roots, the show coursed with elements of the romantic and technological, which can be seen in the video on the Alexander McQueen Web site. Sarah Burton‘s third ready-to-wear collection since its founder’s death demonstrates just how well she has settled into her role as the label’s designer. Andie Arthur, Hanne Gaby, Sigrid Agren, and Kate Kosushkina also featured in this show. [AlexanderMcQueen.com]
