Mary Katrantzou at David Jones

Today I attended an intimate event at David Jones with Mary Katrantzou, the well known Greek designer who is only 29 and has already made it big internationally with her statement print designs, which are beautiful and technical. Each design is engineered precisely to each size of dress, so that it looks the same on a size 6 to a size 16. When designing, she thinks about each womens figure so that the prints she uses compliment them, so they look and feel amazing. It's a skill not many designers have and it may be due to her background in architecture, which makes sense. Edwina McCann, the editor of Vogue Australia interviewed the 'queen of prints' in front of a small group of guests and I was really impressed with the way she spoke. She is very approachable and talks about her incredible designs so naturally, that it makes it seem easy, when it is far from. She mentioned that some prints can take up to 6 months to complete. Women all around the world, of every age are wanting to wear her designs and I am one of them. The colours, prints and textures are stunning and we were lucky enough to be up close to a range of her designs which I took some photos of to share with you below. One day, I will own one of her dresses! It's definitely something on my wish list!! Enjoy xx
