Cathy Horyn Thrilled With Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton Appointment

Sarah Burton.

Cathy Horyn on the appointment of Sarah Burton as creative director of Alexander McQueen: "She’s the only person really qualified for the job ... She was also responsible for translating Mr. McQueen’s runway collections into commercial pieces, translations which have become sharper in recent years. She is not a star, but she is very well known in the fashion world and, most important, has worked closely over the years with the pattern makers and other technical people, especially in Italy, who produce the McQueen line. In promoting the best-qualified person for the job, and not going outside the house for a name designer not intimately connected to the McQueen story, Gucci Group and McQueen executives have a very positive statement about the business."
