Givenchy by Alexander McQueen, Fall Winter 1999 Ready-to-Wear. Photographed by Thierry Orban. Sarah Burton: ‘I remember one collection - the prêt-à-porter autumn/winter 1999-2000 collection - which involved a model in a Perspex robotic body.

Alexander McQueen repeatedly used the theme of birds within his work. He was inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's classic film The Birds and based his 1995 spring/summer collection the film. More recently his autumn/winter 2009 collection also showed his obsession with Hitchcock.
