 Mary Katrantzou Fall/Winter 2014/15

Mary Katrantzou was born in Athens in 1983. She moved to America to study for a BA in Architecture at the Rhode Island school of design, before transferring to Central Saint Martins to complete her BA degree in textile design. Katrantzou shifted her direction from textile design to womenswear with a focus on print.

From the beginning her work has been about perception and perspective and channelling that through a visual language that is used to design desirable clothes that are flattering.

Mary Katrantzou’s thematic collections revolve around an icon of luxury, looking for the filtered beauty within it; an object from art or design that a woman would not be able to wear if it were real.  Print, being so visual, has allowed her to create her own distinctive world but in the visual language that she creates, colour texture and shape are equally important to print. Each print is designed around the garment, and the garment simultaneously around the print.

Known for her digital prints, Mary Katrantzou makes the surprise and explores different ways of decorating clothes with laces, jacquards and brocades. Katrantzou presented an intriguing collection with her interpretation of symbols which includes uniforms such as  “TNT, DHL, policemen, bankers, butchers,” as the Greek designer said alongside road signs, badges and crests.
