Hi guys. So, it’s been a while – my deadlines are over and I have been trying to relax, but I always find myself doing everything else but that. Anyway, as I was super busy under London Fashion Week, I wasn’t able to do an update on the shows I liked the most. Therefore, I thought why not do it now?
I fell in love with one particular designer’s fall 15 collection. What I admire the most about her is her ideas, which to be honest are quite different from most designers, however she is always able to create amazing pieces.  A designer who isn't afraid of colour, texture and alternative styles - yes that's the first things that pops in mind when I hear the name Mary Katrantzou.
The Central Saint Martins graduate Mary Katrantzou has done it again. With pink nuances and incredible prints, the Greek fashion designer left the crowd wanting more after seeing her fall 15 collection.
Using pink foam padding as a catwalk, Katrantzou took the audience into a new world. Known as the queen of digital print, Katrantzou started her career in London in 2005, where she graduated in Fashion at CSM. 

However, fashion wasn’t her starting point, as the Greek designer first moved to America to study architecture at the Rhode Island school of design, where she later on got transferred to CSM to complete her bachelors degree in textile design. Katrantzou’s architecture background is seen in a lot of her designs, as she is particularly interested in the way in which printed textiles are able to change the shape of a woman’s body: “Prints can be as definitive as a cut or a drape and allows a woman to filter beauty found in design in a subversive way.”
Playing around with prints and various effects, she has been and is still able to create a world of her own, which is also evident in her most recent collection.
 Mixing and matching different materials to create unique looks seems to be an easy task for Katrantzou as seen in the pictures about. Furthermore, the multitalented Katrantzou has collaborated with Topshop, Swarovski and most recently Adidas where she designed sportswear with her famous 3D like prints. Now if she isn’t a talented designer then I don’t who else is. What I adore the most about Katrantzou is her humbleness towards her work and everything else she decides to lay her hands one, which makes her one of my most favourite designers.
I hope it was a good read!
Until next time,
Mell O.
