The Design Museum have just unveiled their Christmas tree which has been designed by the rising star of British fashion, Mary Katrantzou. The tree incorporates patterns from her Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection, which was inspired by everyday objects.

Measuring 3m in height the tree will combine Katrantzou’s trademark bold patterns with Christmas sparkle, to create this inventive take on a Christmas tree. The designer says that ‘the print was inspired by formal gardens and artful box parterres, these were layered and overlaid to create an intricate maze-like print reminiscent of a hand embroidered lace motif.’

Mary Katrantzou is being heralded as one of the fashion designers to watch internationally. Her clothes are sold in over 250 stores across the world and her recent collection for Topshop sold out in the first few days of its release. The tree will be up until the 9th January 2013.
