Mary Katrantzou showed these absolutely fabulous futuristic patterned dresses at London Fashion Week. The prints are photographic quality graphic and many look like perfume bottles brought to life.

The more I look at them, the stronger the fragrance connection emerges. Crystal stoppers, narrow scent dispersing openings and liquid gold vessels in organic shapes reminiscent of fine perfume bottles.

Implications - The fashion industry pulls inspiration from the strangest of places at times, with some pieces bearing a similar aesthetic to the most mundane, everyday items. These dresses by Mary Katrantzou are a perfect example, serving as a tale to all emerging designers to always keep their eyes open--you never know when inspiration will hit.
