Hidden Talents: Mary Katrantzou SS14

As the catwalks of New York's Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2014 are closing it's doors, and the fashionista's packed up their stiletto's to move the circus to London, I am just sitting here behind my desk, undergoing another week of school. I'm happy to know that London is now the place to be, as this city is a little closer to my door than NYC, so it is easier to feel like an imaginary part of the Fashion Weeks. 

When I was scrolling trough the pictures of yesterday's shows, my eye fell on a marvelous dress by Mary Katrantzou. I must say, the first thing that popped into my mind, was: 'Mary KatrantWHO? I didn't have a clue about this (relatively) young designer. (shame on me, shows what a fashion rookie I am) After I did some research, I knew she was born in Athens in Greece, and that se already did a collab with Topshop, that selled out like crazy. I am very fond of her (digital) prints and about the amazing cuts the dresses have. There also was a variation between strong, robust silhouettes and feminine, glittering dresses. I really like the whole line! Take a look with me:

The dress that caught my eye.

This silhouette is clearly darker, edgier, tougher.
How amazing are these prints?
Another one of those rocking dresses (that combination of colors!)

You can see the integral collection in this video.
