British designer of year 2012

Mary Katrantzou

British Fashion Awards are being held tonight and the nominees for Designer of the year fall to Christopher Kane, Mary Katrantzou and Stella McArtney.

My winner is Mary Katrantzou ever since her debut collection in 2008 she has bought fashion to a 3dimensional structure with her use of silhouette and her use of digital print in creating a story in her garments. It is her mix of colour and print that combine in a theatratrical explosion of aesthetical charm.

She won emerging talent in Ready to wear 2011 so surely the next progression is winning Designer of the year, she has become a well recognisable name with her collaboration with Topshop and her style of print and hyper real colour is strikingly unique.
