Mary Katrantzou

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.

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.
