Quote of Note | Mary Katrantzou


Looks from the fall 2013 Mary Katrantzou collection, shown Sunday in London.

“All my prints are constructed through digital technology. Studying architecture made me very aware of the digital construction and technicality of engineering in design, which has really informed my design direction with prints. In my design and thought process, I’m constantly building from the foundations of my initial inspiration, and I often use architectural methods of accumulating designs at phase one. Engineering my prints is very mathematical and technical, and it allows me to envision a 3D shape around the body, sculpting a second skin for a woman. Digital print allows me to experiment with print in a way that fine art and other methods could not. It opens up a huge spectrum for possibility. I can create possibility out of impossibility, surrealism out of realism and vice versa for both.”

-Fashion designer Mary Katrantzou (who studied architecture at RISD before transferring to Central Saint Martins) in an interview with Nordstrom’s Qianna Smith
