Sarah Burton for Interview Magazine (March)

McQueen Creative Director and Designer Sarah Burton appears in Interview magazine's March issue, discussing such things as the woman at the heart of the McQueen world; the difficulties she faced in selecting the right pieces for the "Savage Beauty" exhibition; creating a diffusion label which reflects the high-quality of the mainline, and how Lee McQueen once left her to finish a dress by herself when she first began working for the fashion house:

"I remember he pinned it on the stand, and it looked amazing. He had sort of half sewn it and he said, “Oh, I’m going out now. You can finish that.” and I remember thinking, I can’t possibly do that! I called my mum immediately. I was like, “Oh my god, well, how am I gonna finish this?” and she said, “Just get on with it.” What was so amazing about him is that he made you think that anything is possible. He made you challenge yourself all the time, which is why I loved working for him. Nothing was ever impossible. And that was amazing to be around. Completely inspiring".
