Antoni and Alison
This is their 25th anniversary and you bet they marked the occasion instead of looking back into the past to celebrate they looked into the future. They gave our eyes every shade of silk dress short or long you could imagine, that were illustrated with prints such as crayons, flowers, bows and stokes of a paintbrush with glitter, gems and jewels.  Happy 25th anniversary Antoni and Alison.

All hail Bora Aksu should we say? Marie the Queen of Romania in the 19th century was the muse of this designer. Art Nouveau was seen with the spiralling floral prints. Sheer three quarter length silk sleeves were seen on printed shift dresses along with lace and brocade. Ballooning printing was seen in puffed sleeve dresses. Opening with mustards and reds with defining silver threads were dominant, moving to royal shades of purple with shots of coral throughout. Bora Aksu delivered aristocracy at a new level, All hail, Bora Aksu. 

Zoe Jordan gave us a sporty collection that was more than wearable but sharp and sleek at the same time. Just 2 weeks after giving birth these garments will do her just fine if she's wanting to get back in shape. There were flashes of orange with whites, and a very youthful feel to her collection she didn’t play it as safe as she usually does and boy do we love her for it.

Eudon Choi’s inspiration came from films such as A Space Odessy and 2001, which came through as a futuristic collection of sportswear. We saw cocoon white jackets with crisp white tunics teamed with colourful panelled skirts and silver and navy jumpsuits, all the dresses were drawn in at the models slender waists. Adding to the space age theme came tubes fastened in the hair. Choi’s collection was feminine but futuristic. Choi won Vauxhall Fashion Scout's Merit Award in 2010 and his collection will soon to be in Selfridges. He is definitely the one to look out for in the future, Keep watching them films Choi we want to see more.

Sass and bide.
With their well-awaited return to London Sass and Bide gave us feminine yet masculine features throughout with the inspiration for the collection coming from Peru.  Their was mini dresses with garnished waists of gold that gave us a feeling we had already seen, which of course we had as they had incorporated it into our invitations. Then came floral cravats and halter neck feathered dresses. The whole collection was clean and sharp that had a pure and innocent feel to it. To top it all off they brought Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn back with them.
