The best of 2011: designers

Designers have been publicised by celebrities even more than usual this year, the crème de la crème was, of course, Kate Middleton in Alexander McQueen at the Royal Wedding.

Vuitton brought glamourised sex appeal to the catwalk for autumn. Erdem went monochrome with splashes of colour for spring. House of Holland featured every colour under the sun. LFW SS12 announced colour to our wardrobes for SS12 from almost every designer but there were some that did it best...

Mary Katrantzou

AW11 
SS12 
The Greek Central St. Martins graduate wowed this year with flattering, streamline shapes and outlandish patterns. It's no surprise that Mary took home the Emerging Talent - Ready-to-wear award at the British Fashion awards 2011. Mary described her SS12 inspirations as “Industrial fabrication versus formal beauty in nature".
Jonathan Saunders

 AW11
SS12
Jonathan Saunders has gone from strength to strength since his first collection, shown in New York in 2008. His collections this year have emphasised the female figure with fluidity. His AW11 was a particular favorite of mine, with androgynous suits contrasted against feminine patterns.  
Christopher Kane

AW11
SS12
The AW11 collection that Christopher Kane produced wasn't the most striking but it certainly stuck around in my mind for months, and was extremely wearable. His SS12 was the reverse. I feel utterly in love at first sight. He has evolved greatly over the past few years, producing beautiful, unique clothes, including day-to-night wear. He really does create something for everyone.
