Everyone is wearing Mary Katrantzou, are you?

As if we needed any more confirmation that black is dead (it's all print and color crazy on the SP/SU 2012 catwalks thus far) here's the lovely Alexa Chung in New York rocking a beautifully ornate Ming vase!

Well, it's obviously not an actual vase, but a dress by one of London Fashion Week's brightest talents, Mary Katrantzou.

Greek-born Mary Katrantzou, a Central Saint Martins graduate, has got a unique way with prints, and after showing her seventh collection at LFW last week, the early adopters on planet fashion are now taking note.

Chung isn't the only one to champion the 28-year-old's marvelous work: Actress Leelee Sobieski-who out of nowhere it seems, has asserted herself as quite the thoughtful dresser-made an impact when she showed up to the Metropolitan Opera opening wearing a peplum, fish bowl-print minidress, a style very similar to the one Vogue Japan fashion director Anna Dello Russo was pictured in during New York Fashion Week.

Even Keira Knightley-who has a penchant for frothy Chanel and Erdem frocks-opted for a directional, midi-hem gown that is from Katrantzou's AU/WI 2011 collection.

If anyone needed further proof that Mary is 'Going Global', just consider all-round hipster Solange Knowles (yes, Beyoncé's little sis) who got into the Katrantzou groove with a slouchy, printed shirt dress to attend the London shows.

Miss Katrantzou, my predictions are that your future looks colorfully bright.
