Athens-born Mary Katrantzou is becoming a popular go-to designer for starlets in Hollywood. Celebrities from Keira Knightley and Claudia Schiffer to Leelee Sobieski and Alexa Chung – to name a few – have all shown up wearing her incredible designs to red carpet events.
One of the London-based designer’s dresses was recently worn by Kerry Washington for “The Details” film premiere just last month in Los Angeles.
Katrantzou, 28, studied in the U.S. and had her first big fashion collection premiere at the autumn/winter London Fashion Week in 2008. Her patterns are easily identifiable by vibrant colors and prints.
In 2012, she won the ELLE Style Award for “Young Designer” and The Luxury Briefing Award for “Emerging Luxury Designer.” Her collection is available at high end retailers, including Barney’s New York, net-a-porter.com, and Neiman Marcus.
