Dressing Room

Mary Katrantzou was clearly inspired by the surroundings of a dressed-to-the-nines room, for her Spring Summer 2011 collection.

The collection featured drapery, upholstery fringe and even a lampshade skirt!

I had the pleasure of seeing her pieces up close at an event last Fall, showcasing Ms. K and her contemporaries – the new breed of Brits and their bright ideas.

I am beginning to see the light and it's in the form of a lampshade skirt.

Those wedge heels were also one of my favourite shoes this season.
