Mary Katrantzou Crystal Christmas Tree At Design Museum

Highly acclaimed fashion designer Mary Katrantzou will be designing this year's Christmas tree for the Design Museum. The tree will incorporate patterns from her Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection, which was inspired by

everyday objects and will be a 2D design on the museum's outer wall. Katrantzou's Autumn/Winter 2012 collection included collaboration with Swarovski and Lesage to create masterful embroideries elevating the
mundane to the sublime, as part of the Swarovski Collective.

Measuring 3m in height the tree will combine Katrantzou's trademark bold patterns with Christmas sparkle to create this inventive take on a Christmas tree.

Mary Katrantzou comments:

'The print was inspired by formal gardens and artful box parterres, these were layered and overlaid to create an intricate maze-like print reminiscent of a hand embroidered lace motif.'

The collaboration marks the exciting rise of Mary Katrantzou as one of the foremost fashion designers in the world. Katrantzou clothes are sold in over 250 stores across the world. Her recent collection for Topshop sold out in the first few days of its release. In November 2011 Katrantzou was awarded British Fashion Award for Emerging Talent and her 2011 Autumn/Winter Collection was nominated in this year's Design Museum Designs of the Year awards. Past collaborations include a Longchamp bag line, Swarovski jewellery and a denim range with Current Elliot.

Mary Katrantzou's Christmas tree will be on display at Design Museum, Shad Thames, London SE1 2YD from Tuesday 4 December 2012 - 9 January 2013
