Mary Katrantzou is a designer whom I've admittedly never heard of before, but she makes interesting garments - that's for sure. Here are photos from the runway show of her Spring 2011 Ready To Wear collection. I always thought that 'Ready To Wear' collections meant... well... I didn't think it meant this. But Trendland called Katrantzou "among the second wave of breakout stars of the digital print revolution that has been sweeping London’s designers". (She's from the UK).

Her Spring 2011 Collection appears a nice echo to her Autumn/Winter 2010/11 collection:

So this collection inspired by room interiors is the first I've ever seen of this concept. Have any designers done the lamp shade skirt before? I know I've seen the lamp shade hat...
Katrantzou said, "With this collection, I wanted to put the room on the woman, rather than the woman in the room.” If you want to see more, check out her website.
