The British Fashion Council announced yesterday the shortlist of designers for the BFC/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund – and it’s pretty good company to be in.
The designer has been described as a ‘print magician’ for her tongue-in-cheek surrealist creations that fetch up to $48,000 apiece. She has already earned herself an army of celebrity fans including Keira Knightly, Alexa Chung and Solange Knowles.
Mary Katrantzou hasn’t got enough time to create resort collections.
BFC announced that three womenswear designers Henry Holland, Louise Gray and Mary Katrantzouand one menswear designer James Long, will receive Fashion Forward sponsorship for two consecutive seasons to show in London.
After two consecutive seasons chockfull of her now signature trompe l’oeil dresses, not to mention two seasons of radical praise from the entire fashion world, Mary Katrantzou approached this third season in the spotlight with an understood concern.
