Caged Bird: Alexander McQueen Spring 2013

Paris Fashion week just wrapped and I have to say it was thrilling. Alexander McQueen show was a showstopper. I fell in love with the amazing hats and caged bodice incorporated which accentuated the models waist.  Creative director Sara Burton, took us back to the hay days of the late Lee Alexander McQueen.  Right away I was reminded of one of my all time favorite poems "I know why the caged bird sings" By Maya Angelou. Here is an excerpt from the poem

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

                                                   Freedom should never be taken for granted.
