L'Wren Scott Designer: L'Wren Scott

  • "A look that was indebted to Asian culture from head to toe." [Grazia Daily]
  • "On Sunday at London fashion week the formidable Scott, who stands 6'3" in her handmade brogues, showed for the second season that her clothes are quite capable of stealing the limelight from the diminutive rock star seated next to Anna Wintour." [The Guardian]
  • "It is tough not to let a Japanese theme seem stagey. But Ms. Scott, taking her bow in the plainest of black tops and pants, put all the charm in the detail." [International Herald Tribune]
  • "There’s a sorcery quality in her femininity, too, and she brings it out with vivid reds, fan-patterned black lace and a crisp silhouette for daytime tweeds and cotton." [The New York Times]
  • "The label has made the siren warmer and less threatening, though just as powerfully sensual." [POPSUGAR Fashion]
  • "Asked why her soundtrack incongruously featured a song called 'Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing,' Scott fessed up that the horrendous expense of her embellishment was her bad, bad thing. But it's hardly anything she'll go to hell for." [Style.com]
  • "Stripped of these playful accoutrements, the lean-leg pantsuits, shapely jackets, and pencil-skirted dresses were flattering and eminently wearable." [Vogue.com]
  • "An example of impeccable workmanship, it was also nearly impossible to imagine off the runway." [WWD]

Mary Katrantzou Designer: Mary Katrantzou

  • "Mary Katrantzou ... took shoes as her inspiration for this season's take on the graphic prints that made her famous." [AFP]
  • "Mary Katrantzou secured her title as queen of serious prints." [The Daily Beast]
  • "Mary Katrantzou is synonymous with bright, bold prints and her spring/summer14 collection reasserted her love of all things graphic." [The Daily Mail]
  • "Mary Katrantzou is synonymous with bright, bold prints and her spring/summer14 collection reasserted her love of all things graphic." [The Daily Telegraph]
  • "Mary Katrantzou, who seemed engulfed by her own brilliance with computerized patterns." [International Herald Tribune]
  • "Crystals, pearls and sequins were festooned across the high shine minis creating party dresses fit for modern day Marie Antoinettes. A fabulously decadent shoe in a dress--what more could a girl want?" [Grazia Daily]
  • "An indulgently trompe l’oeil ode to another everyday object." [NOWFASHION]
  • "The designer reasserted her signature with an about-face from Fall's somber palette and a finale that walked to the upbeat tune of The Rolling Stones' 'She's a Rainbow.'" [POPSUGAR Fashion]
  • "On a grim and rainy London day, Mary Katrantzou’s runway transported guests to a world of color and sparkle." [Speakeasy/

    Wall Street Journal]

  • "You could while away the minutes till Mary's show started today by playing Count the Katrantzou in her audience: All ages, all shapes, all sizes were wearing clothes from past collections. That spells success, but it also highlighted the challenge Mary Katrantzou faces with each new season. The niche she has carved for herself narrows as the novelty of her extraordinary work with prints fades." [Style.com]
  • "It’s not that she should abandon the world of color and delight. There’s no prescription for what it ought to be, because a designer of Katrantzou’s abilities is clever enough to present us with stuff no one else ever imagined possible. She’s done it once, but can she award herself the space to push that experimental intelligence again?" [Vogue.com]
  • "Those digital prints are back, and this time it’s shoes as fetish." [Vogue.com UK]
  • "Finding women bold enough to carry off these densely decorated clothes is something of a Cinderella question." [WWD]

Mulberry Designer: Emma Hill

  • "Heritage luxury brand Mulberry always nods to traditional Britishness on its catwalks, and its new spring showcase Sunday was no different, with hints of 1960s London, English roses and a bulldog called Turbo." [AP]
  • "In this, her swansong collection for spring/summer 2014, Hill reworked some of the volume silhouettes she’s been playing with these past few seasons." [ELLEuk.com]
  • "The quintessentially British tradition of afternoon tea--a ritual which, with its crustless sandwiches and miniature cakes, is decorative as well as practical--set the scene for Hill's final show." [The Guardian]
  • "This show was full of cheery sportswear and bright poppy prints." [International Herald Tribune]
  • "All the signs bode well for Mulberry and truth be told the affair was as sprightly as a summer's day." [NOWFASHION]
  • "We already miss Hill's quirky-cool aesthetic--this time with loose-fitting '60s-style shift dresses in fun textured florals--and wish her well on her next adventure." [POPSUGAR Fashion]
  • "Hill's swan song was a signature effort." [Style.com]
  • "Hill managed to imbue what was a highly emotional moment with her usual quick, irreverent wit." [Vogue.com]
  • "In her final collection for the brand, creative director Emma Hill was faithful to her favorite English themes." [WWD]
