Update! If you can't get on the site, don't worry. Showstudio is getting high volume and is trying to sort it out. The good news is there's word from Paris that the show won't start for a bit, I'd check in again at 9 pm Paris time. Hang in there, it will be well worth the wait!
I cannot wait for this. Luckily it's scheduled to start in just over two hours, not taking into consideration the standard half hour delay for fashion shows. But I'm guessing Lee McQueen has everything calibrated to precise measurement to ensure this one is absolutely perfect, for he's treating us to a live stream of his show, Plato's Altantis, in Paris this evening. Filmed under the direction of Nick Knight, this live broadcast aims to
capture the essence of an Alexander McQueen show: ‘the
witnessing of a unique moment in time’. Streamed on a
joint micro-site alexandermcqueenlive.showstudio.com
alongside an exclusive pre-show interview with Alexander McQueen
himself, the stream is set to kick-off at 8:15 Paris time this evening.
To get you primed you can watch the absolutely captivating and exhilarating film of McQueen's Iconic Moments by clicking the image above which will take you to the video on Showstudio. (I have to admit I cried a little. I sat with my head in my hands watching it over and over. THIS is fashion.)
