Style.comâ€™s Year in Style mash-up of all that was seen and heard from the fashion world in 2010 is out, and it includes everything from personal style scene-stealers like Lady Gaga and Anna Dello Russo to digital fashion endeavors and movers and shakers like Terry Richardson and James Franco. The fashion Web siteâ€™s review is pretty complete, but we would like to put our two cents in on what was important this year in fashion. Here, we present our take on the yearâ€™s hits that Style.com left out or paid too little attention to (and a few fashion misses as well) in Signature9â€™s 2010 fashion wrap-up.
Style.com covered the passing of Alexander McQueen and the showing of the final collection he designed, but something that was equally important this year was the success of Sarah Burtonâ€™s first show as the new designer for the McQueen label. The passing of such a genius creative mind was indeed tragic, and the showing of McQueenâ€™s last collection was a special moment, but Burtonâ€™s signal that the brand can honor McQueenâ€™s legacy while moving forward was absolutely stellar.
Dior haute couture was in full bloom this year when John Galliano showed his Spring 2011 collection of flower-inspired looks. The imagery and execution of the designs combined with the high, tulip-like hair of the models for a full package display of gorgeousness and perhaps our favorite moment in fashion of 2010.
