Alexander McQueen – Razor Clams

My friend George and I were walking on the beach in Norfolk and there were thousands of [razor clam] shells. They were so beautiful, I thought I had to do something with them. So we decided to make [a dress] out of them…The shells had outlived their usefulness on the beach, so we put them to another use on this dress. Then Erin [O’Connor] came out and trashed the dress, so their usefulness was over once again. Kind of like fashion, really.”
