When the fashion world lost one of it's most creative and inspiring designers, Alexander McQueen, everyone wondered what would happen to the label. McQueen is impossible to replace. The Gucci Group, which owns Alexander McQueen, was specific that the label would continue. The speculation is that McQueen's previous running mate, Sarah Burton, will become the new creative director. Burton had been working with McQueen since she was 16 years old. She released a statement confirming her new position; 'The creation of modern beautifully crafted clothes was at the heart of Lee’s vision. I intend to stay true to his legacy.'
