If you haven’t gotten a chance to watch the short, I’ve made it easy and brought it to you right here. Don’t try to watch this while you’re multi-tasking (ie. working, cooking, running etc.) Give it the 15 minutes of time it deserves and when you’re winding down for the evening, have a go at it. Hope you liked it as much as I did.

Had to highlight fashion designer, Mary Katrantzou, and ready-to-wear Fall 2012 collection during the London Fashion Show last week. Katrantzou managed to not only merge printed graphics onto high fashion design with great sophistication, but was able to use the strength of the various silhouettes and printed designs and take fashion to another level. Its absolutely astounding. Ranging from graphics of typewriters, an ornamental lawn, to a mandala of No. 2 HB pencils with erasers attached, Katrantzou’s innovative design is definitely an inspiration. Even those of you who aren’t big into fashion could appreciate this.
