Mary Katrantzou is one of the designers of the moment and the spotlight has been on her unusual and inventive collection at this year's LFW which took place at the Topshop Showspace.
Lampshade-sculpted dresses and Elizabethan corsetry, outfits were accented with spoons, phone dials, typewriter keys, luggage tassels and clothes hangers.
One dress was even cleverly created from yellow pencils - how droll!
Dramatic, stiff and structured silhouettes contrasted the softer and fluid creations.
These pieces would probably not be a choice for an everyday outfit and they would prove to be daring for even the most outlandish among us. But I certainly do appreciated the uniqueness and creativity of this collection. It is no wonder that she was the winner of the Emerging Talent Awards at last year’s British Fashion Awards
Mary Katrantzou currently has a much coveted Spring/Summer '12 capsule collection in Topshop featuring the signature prints that she is famed for which has already "flown off the shelves"! A minimal amount of pieces are still available online.
