Mary Katrantzou at London Fashion Week

Young designer Mary Katrantzou first standalone show at London Fashion Week was stunning. The collection was inspired by the stylized 70s photography of Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin, where the interiors became as important as the models. Each garment was a work of art; the patterns were inspired by old copies of Architectural Digest and World of Interiors. Delicate silk blouses were tucked into mini-crinolines imitating lampshades while dresses with prints of window frames had chiffon fluttering like drapes.
" With this collection, I wanted to put the room on the woman, rather than the woman in the room."
---Mary Katrantzou
