Last spring, something curiously wonderful occurred at the offices of Mary Katrantzou: people began to send in illustrations of her Autumn Winter 2012 collection. One by one, the team began to share the works of art on the Mary Katrantzou Facebook page… and the artworks kept rolling in. In early June, the clever minds of Katrantzou seized the social engagement opportunity and an inspired illustration competition was officially conceived. What would be the prize? Scoring a much coveted seat at the Mary Katrantzou Spring Summer 2013 show in September. This serendipitous contest has now come to an end and the lucky (and talented) winner will be announced on September 1st. Meantime, above is a small curation of the stunning creativity in the running. Below is the BeautifulCurious pick for “Best in Show”, but we wish every artist the best of luck and of course applaud the social media brilliance here.
