This piece is collaborated projectIdid with à la mode [adj: fusion of effects]. to pay our final tribute to the great fashion designer Lee Alexander McQueen. [link]

Alexander McQueen was a genius, a truly master of visual art. I am still blown away every time when I see his work and this piece is my tribute to him.

This image is based on the final outfit of Alexander McQueen’s 2010 fall/winter collection. The color palette also comes from this collection and I do feel the color red is full of life and passion. The golden feathers represent an angelic dove, ready to take wing. On the left, there is the grid which represents a net that entrapped her. Love and hope are represented by the doves and the light on the right. The theme of this piece is about the inner struggle for freedom.

I have some limited edition postcards for this piece. If you are interested in getting one, please note me with your name and address, I will send it to you as your holiday gift! I only have limited number of cards, it will be first come first serve. So hurry up! :dance:

i really love this .. it must've taken a lot of time

the main thng that bothers me is that it hink there is too much redred and black and white definitely go togehter but she kind of gets lost in it

maybe consider giving her hair different colored highlights ?? or more gold in her hair ?
