The female designers Sarah Burton graduated from the Central Saint Martins College in London in 1996 formally joined the McQueen's design team. Since 2000 so far, she has followed McQueen for 14 years and has been his competent assistant. McQueen did not complete the 2010 autumn and winter series, but it is under the lead of Sarah Burton, then it was able to show in March on this year's Paris Fashion Week show.
When referring to McQueen when the brand's future design direction, Sarah said he always will remain unique brand of dark ideas, but would add some female perspective of a lighter design. Sarah's father was an accountant and his mother was a music teacher, Sarah is interested in clothes from an early age, she is precisely the interest in guidelines, applied for the Central Saint Martins College.
She was fortunate to have the opportunity to work in the McQueen brand, and this work has been continued to the present. She learned a lot about McQueen around design details, McQueen hands-on personality, making her learn a lot in the design of the most valuable knowledge.
