I’m always looking to find ways of working with my friend The Pothole Gardener. And since it’s London Fashion Week coupled with the fact that Mary Katrantzou, one of my favourite designer‘s has just sold out her third capsule collection for TopShop, I thought we could use her as inspiration.
I love-love-love her floral digital prints – though I’m gutted that I wasn’t quick enough to pick up one of these dresses for myself. These little paper cut-outs are going to have to do. And anyway, they’re perfect for playing paper dolls. Does anyone else remember those?
Mary is also a contributing editor at MyDaily – so, it’s not too much of a stretch to say that I work with her, right? And looky, here’s a video of her talking about her new TopShop collection. I adore her passion and the way she describes her work – that’s what the fashion industry is really like to me.
Mary also presented her AW12 RTW collection at London Fashion Week earlier today. It was stellar. I’ll give you a full report soon. Promise.
