Cate Blanchett in Mary Katrantzou at the Cannes Film Festival 2018








I was thrilled to see the mythical Cate Blanchett wearing a specially crafted Mary Katrantzou number at the Cannes Film Festival. 
Ms. Katrantzou coming from an illustruous retailing family in Greece, has shown, after the distruction of the family business by terrorists in the 1980s, that there is hope in the Future when you are talented and work hard (a blessing by goddess Luck always helps!). 



The dress came from the Spring-Summer 2018 collection, and after the show both Mary and Cate expressed their pleasure in working together.

As British Vogue reports, 

From the initial design to the final embellishments, the Mary Katrantzou dress Cate Blanchett wore to the Cannes Film Festivalpremiere of Cold War took six months to create. Three solid weeks were spent on hand embroidering the custom creation with sequins, bugle beads and Swarovski crystals alone.Look closely, Katrantzou says, and you’ll see the paint by numbers story from the collection, which was inspired by nostalgic childhood pastimes. “The dress evolves from this black and white linear print on a racer-back bodice into an explosion of colour and texture in a voluminous asymmetric skirt.Blanchett was involved in every step of the process, from OK-ing the silk faille base to the intricate beadwork.

                  I love to see happy collaborations with inventive, talented Greek designers. 
                   They struggle so hard in the current world environment and they make it!
                                                   So proud of you!
