Mary Katrantzou ... Printed Genius



Mary, Mary, Mary .... Mary Katrantzou! I am a huge fan of her designs, to me she is a printed genius. I love her unique bold and graphic eye-catching prints. When you .. or at least when I see a Mary Katrantzou piece I immediately know it's her. At only 28 years young Mary has definitely made a name for herself in fashion. Her first Ready-To-Wear Collection debuted at London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2009 and with only 9 pieces in her collection she was able to pick up 15 prestigious stockist. From there she flourished. Now Mary (I know I'm saying her name as if I know her, but in my head I we're besties) has over 100 stockist and many celebs wearing her fashion such as Jessica Alba, Beyonce, Keira Knightly and Sarah Jessica Parker just to name a few.

I love that she finds inspiration in perfume bottles, artisan blown glass and 18th century portraiture paintings. Her fashion is walking art and I look forward to seeing more of her designs in the near future. You go girl!
