MARY KATRANTZOU at david jones
My first show for this years LMFF and it was incred. Just when you think you are safe and feel like the winter wardrobe is coming along nicely, bang you get a whole lot of DJ’s in your face and you are back to square one with the need for all of these pretty new things. Oh the life of a shop-o-holic/fashion obsessed gal. Any who moving onto the show, it was opened in spectacular ‘fashion’ by the festivals special guest Miss Mary Katrantzou, the greek goddess of print. The detail and structure of these garments are true works of art. They left me speechless. The color, the structure, the silhouette – just amazing.
I know I should have been banned from the store in the aftermath of the show with the wish list screaming my name. We were invited to have a chat and learn more about the process behind the gloss. Mary spoke of her inspirations and methods in creating with her family tradition of stamp collecting, astro turf and pencils all taking form into these dresses. If you didn’t know who she was before this post do yourself a favour and look her up, she is an amazing woman who’s label goes beyond that of designer fashion and into the world of art and couture.
P.S Willow, goot, camilla & marc and Bassike I am coming for you.
