“Sarah Burton tells British Vogue in the February issue that - perhaps shockingly given her critical acclaim - she nearly didn't take the position as creative director of the Alexander McQueen label after its founder's death. The 36-year-old designer says: ‘For quite a long time I didn't want the job. I thought: how would I ever even begin to begin?…I thought about what I wanted. What was best for me. Like many women my age, I do want children, but I came to think that that's not a reason not to take up a challenge. In the end, I decided to just get on with it: do my best.’”
