One of Mary's biggest champions, Anna Dello Russo
So guess what everyone at NYFW is wearing? Not Calvin, not Tommy, not Donna or any other such quintessentially American designers one would assume, but our very own St Martins Alumni, Greek-born print genius and fashion createur on a constant and major ascent – Mary Katrantzou!
Eagle-eyed readers may spot that Keira is at VENICE not NY. Still, great dress . . .
The double-stamp of approval that came from the fashion industry’s two most powerful Anna’s this year (think back to the profile piece in American Vogue and Dello Russo’s continued support by wearing/being forever street-snapped in her most wonderful show-pieces at fashion week) will have alerted many stylish stateside ladies to the wonderment of Mary’s dazzling prints, ultra-flattering silhouettes and general head-turning brilliance that can comes with even owning one of her chiffon scarves.
Marina Laroude and Solange Knowles
And to think that ‘twas only three years ago that we enjoyed her first stonker of a LFW show – remember just how fresh and different it was to see those trompe l’oeil perfume bottle patterns come to life? Now she can count Solange Knowles, Keira Knightley and Senior Market Editor of Style.com Marina Laroude as her latest fans – and that’s just THIS week’s sightings! No doubt a further flurry of kaleidoscopic Katrantzou frocks will catch our eye by the time the fash pack fight their way to the front of her show next Tuesday. We can’t WAIT!
