Its time for a wardrobe update with Mary Katrantzou!
The marvellous Mary is a Greek born fashion designer who now resides and designs in London. Coming from a family of designers and architects it was clear from a young age that Mary had a passion and a skill for design and creativity. Just by even looking at her designs it is obvious that she has large amounts of talent!
Mary uses themes for each of her collections to demonstrate the idea of luxury, art and design, graphics and of course, large amounts of colour. This talented designer has been known to base her designs and collections on artisan glass, eighteenth century paintings, perfume bottles and printed imagery.
The launch of her first ready to wear collection was during London Fashion Week in Spring/Summer 2009 and after this, picked up 15 prestigious stockists around the globe. Being the recipient of a variety of awards including British Fashion Council Awards Emerging Talent and Elle Magazines next Young Designer in 2012, it is evident that Mary Katrantzou is definitely a designer to watch out for! Mary also launched a collection for Topshop in the UK in 2010- (lucky them!) and was available in stores in 2011, however quickly sold out only a few hours after being released.
