The final day of shows ended for me with the Manchester School of Art presentation. I brushed shoulders with Barbara Hulanicki as I tried to find my seat in a packed theatre at Earls Court. The student that got tongues wagging was Poppy Warwicker-Le Breton with her oversized cream knitted skirts. Some have compared it to Yohji Yamamoto, but either way she made sure it was memorable.
To see more images from the show, just keep reading.
Michael Bolton-Heaton went with a space age theme with white dresses and spherical skirts. Emma Murphy built a collection around adorable tutus which were very girly. There was a nightwear feel to some of the pieces.
I really liked Rose Whittaker's dungaree themed collection. It was fun and commercially viable with trompe l'oeil prints. Jessica Nicol closed the show with her hand and arm themed collection. The items had subtle hand detail on the shoulders and she finished with a giant sized puff ball dress constructed of sleeves. For me, this was one of the best shows of the week. I can't wait to see who features in the gala show tonight!
