Designer- Mary Katrantzou

When I see a piece of clothing or an accessory in a magazine I always look to see who designed it. I like to get to know designers and their aesthetic. Every designer has their own unique look and I think it's fun to try and guess who the designer is. It is a game I internally play as I flip through fashion magazines.

Lately, Mary Katrantzou has been catching my eye. Known for her architectural prints, her clothes are vivid and artistic. Fairly new to the design world, she graduated from Saint Martens in 2008 and had her first debut collection later that year, with Spring/Summer 2009 at London Fashion week. In November 2011 Katrantzou was awarded the British Fashion Award for Emerging Talent in women's wear and in February 2012 was awarded Young Designer of the Year at the Elle Style Awards. Katrantzou hails from Greece and lives in London. Her collections can be found at over 200 boutiques worldwide, including high end stores like Barney's, Selfridges and Collette.

Resort 2014 was Katrantzou's debut resort collection. The collection was a mixture of industrial inspirations and flowers mixed together to create a beautiful landscape.

Here were some of my favorites from Resort 2014:

I love that each dress is like a work of art. In the last two, I get lost just starting into the landscape.

Katrantzou definitely is known for her prints, making her designs easily recognizable. She is one designer that I am loving and will for sure know when I see her designs.
