Alexander McQueen launched their backstage film of their Spring/Summer 2013 show created by Sean Frank today.

You can see the seamstresses at work, the intricate details and the model getting ready to storm the runway.

“The collection is a study of femininity. We looked at erotica. Vargas girls, cages, corsets and crinolines and the idealisation of the female form. Nothing is set in a particular period. It’s about sensuality and skin but not nudity. We also wanted to express lightness, for the clothes almost to hover over the women who wear them.”
