Mary Katrantzou Hudson's Bay Event

Last week was a very event-ful week, one in which I had the pleasure of attending some very reputable events. While I was blown away by Jason Matlo's Bridal show earlier in the week, the event that had me bouncing with excitement and losing sleep trying to decide what to wear, was the Mary Katrantzou event hosted by the Hudson's Bay Company.

You may have seen the Design Inspiration post I did on Mary Katrantzou here a couple of months ago.  As soon as I saw her first collection I immediately fell in love. A fellow print worshiper myself, her use and manipulation of digital prints just blows me away!

Whats that?....Your eyes have never been blessed by the vision of Mary's print masterpieces?... well then put on your stimulation goggles because you are about to be visually aroused.

printed leather.... to die for!

I so badly wanted this dress.. I had to be physically held back from trying it on because I knew that if I even got half my body into that dress I would have been sailing straight to the sales counter. Unfortunately I really enjoy affording to eat, and it just wasn't my night. 

Now I may or may not have (unsuccessfully) waited in a vey long line for the slightest possibility of maybe getting to see her fall 2012 runway show when I was at London Fashion Week last February, but here I am, in all my glory, chatting with the outstanding designer herself.

And I wasn't the only one who was start struck that night...

Once again The Hudson's Bay Company threw a glamorous night of fashion awe. Thanks to Mary Katrantzou, Kiran Khaira, and The Room, I have had the most amazing colourful, fashion fantasy dreams for the past week . 

Lastly I leave you with this picture of Mary Katrantzou with some of her team and supporters all wearing the designer's creations. 

Wouldn't it be the most beautiful and colourful world if we could all just wear a little piece of Mary Katrantzou? What's your favourite piece from Mary's fall 2012 collection?
