A buzz in the audience as they wait in anticipation to see the work of a creative genius. The lights go up, the music begins and as the first model places her foot on the runway there is a feeling of awe and excitement. The lady behind this spectacular collection is the one and only Mary Katrantzou. From her debut in 2009 she has been a tour de force in the fashion world. With her use of bold prints and textures Katrantzou has created pieces which are avant-garde yet feminine and totally wearable (a rare talent). I was honored to be in the presence of a true artist and it was a brilliant opening to the amazing event that is L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. The Pièce de résistance the crazy beautiful typewriter dress of course!!
