Moda Operandi is tapping into a group of fashion insiders to share their tales of “the one that got away” in a new video series that has us all reminiscing about our own stories. Nobody ever forgets the one that got away. For me, it wasn’t a tall, dark and handsome fellow but rather a green printed dress that walked down the runway at Mary Katrantzou‘s Spring 2011 collection. Printed with digitalized fragments of stately interiors from vintage magazines, that dress epitomized everything I love about fashion. The surreal and sublime reinvention of the print literally tugged at my heartstrings. Alas, it was never mine. In 2 days Mary Katrantzou’s Spring 2014 trunkshow is ending on Moda Operandi and here is my change to finally own a piece from the artist. This time I’m not letting these sweet floral printed booties get away.
