I think Im having a genuine fashion moment! Nothing but pure love for this, from the construction to the print to shapes.

one piece more beautiful than the other, and especially the dresses look like works of art. I'd love to collect all of them

I LOVE how it's all very extreme and different but really would not look out of place on most people in lots of environments! Amazing.

This is so great. I was worried this collection was going to be a bit stale, but it's totally surpassed my expectations.

She's cool, I really love her work. She's one of the only designers who doesn't make me feel like I'm looking like at dresses; but at art pieces displayed on people.

I'm actually not much of a fan of the prints this time around but I love the fact that she introduced some new silhouettes and that a lot of the sculpted dresses don't look as stiff in this collection. Many pieces here look much more flowy and flattering than her usual works. I quite like this and I love the two dark red dresses!

I particularly like the earlier looks, the more neutral coloured prints -- because then you can really see the architectural shapes of the clothes!

Are those toilets seats @ #5 ?

Part of me wants to say she's a one trick pony and whilst a signature is all well and good, I'm tired of it. Whilst I can't quite bring myself to say that, it is the case that the first time you see Mary's objet d'art prints they're amazing, by the fifth or sixth season, necessarily the impact won't be quite as strong.

The saving grace was that she did give us something new to look at in the phase #7 to around #12. Even looks that weren't prints. You felt then like things might get really changed up, a new journey. But no. It was back, essentially, to the tried and tested.

I wonder if Mary might be hampered a bit by a wholly understandable logic - these object prints have worked, plaudits received, I daren't risk changing a successful formula. But of course fear of moving on can't be a good thing in fashion. It's standing still you should be wary of.
