Mary Katrantzou: Fall 2001 RTW

Mary Katrantzou is my kind of girl. She's young, talented and truly a bold, new voice in fashion. So I found it very fitting to feature her on International Women's Day! I love her latest collection of elaborately patterned and structured silhouettes. Check out the full slideshow of the collection here.

Also, here is an excerpt from her designer profile on the London Fashion Week site.
Origin: Athens, Greece

Design background:
Mary attended Rhode Island School of Design and then completed both her BA and MA at Central Saint Martins. She has previously worked for Sophia Kokosalaki and freelanced for Bill Blass, amongst other designers.

What are your design signatures? “A hyperrealist aesthetic, bold graphics and industrial jewellery.”

How would you describe the Mary Katrantzou woman?
“She has a liberated spirit and a strong sense of style.”

What is your trademark piece? “For spring/summer 2011 it was the lampshade skirt.”

Name three things that are inspiring you for autumn/winter 2011:
“Diana Vreeland, coromandel screens and the interwar period.”

What’s next for your brand?
“Autumn/winter 2011 and a collaboration with Atelier Swarovski.”

What music is playing in your studio this season?
